    Hi all just wondering if you think it's wroth upgrading to the D300 now or wait till the next Nikon comes out? I guess I'm wondering if it's worth spending all that money for a camera that came out over a year ago.

    Right now I have a D70 which has served me well but am so really for something bigger and better:lol:

    Also does any know who has the best extended warranty in Canada, well BC anyway :)
    TIA

    A place to discuss what photography means to you: your influences, ethical challenges, abstract ideas, and other non-technical matters about photography and photographers.

    Wow, Merry Christmas to you too.

    As for the question. Rumors are flying about a D400 comming soon. Which would mean a lower price for D300. I recently just got my 2nd D300. It's a good step up from a D70. But if you are satisfied with it, maybe wait till spring maybe. A new model may be out then. Price has comedown some on D300. Might catch a good deal after today from retailers begging for cash. If the D300 specs appeal to you. Why not get one?

    Just my way of encouraging the OP to repost in the appropriate forum.

    Thought it would help to make the print bigger.

    Thats a pretty good size of encouragement. I think a little brash, but eh. Oh, well.

    Have a good holiday.

    Sometimes you have to stir to make it happen. Thanks for your opinion--That's what makes it a cool discussion forum.

    I have to agree with Ben. I dont see the replacement coming out too soon. What you have to ask yourself is. Is the D70 not performing or, hampering what you want to do? If it is then upgrade. If not then stay with it till they make the sucessor to it.

    I see the problem-- This is how some folks feel like they participate rather than by taking photos and bringing experience and depth to the table for discussion. That 'bone', so to speak, doesn't exist in their head. There's nothing there for you to draw from.--no real understanding. Possibly, taking and posting your work would help you see the superficiality of your weak and intrusive arguments. How sad that must be, that photography is a collection of things rather than a way of expressing emotions and ideas. How empty and vacant. Thanks for playing!

    abraxas- wow you have some deep emotions happening here. After all this is just a photo forum for hobbyists and professionals alike. I will admit that I posted in the wrong forum but the total aggression shown by yourself to such a matter is flippen ridiculous ! I am here to learn what I can, I find photography fascinating, I believe I do take great shots, and I am not interested in being knocked down over something as small as this. If and when I choose to post my pictures is up to me. There are a lot of people on here who seem to be great at what they do and I am grateful to learn tricks and tips from. In closing I really do hope you have a nice evening and best of luck in the new year. :D
