    Hello all!
    I am slowly thinking of upgrading from my D40x to another body (thinking primarily to d300) for two reasons: built-in autofocus and more buttons. Mostly, buttons to change white balance faster than via menus, and two dials for being able to change aperture rapidly in Manual mode. Have any-one of you upgraded for these or similarly reasons and was it a good upgrade?
    Thanks for any comments!

    The one nice thing about starting out on a cheap superzoom and learning all this photography stuff is, when I do go for a dSLR (doubtful for a VERY long time, maybe when the government bails ME out with all this "free" money they think they have....) I will know exactly what I want. A NON-kit lens and 2 dials on the camera are my top wants for a dSLR.
