It’s official. I’m the proud owner of a Nikon D300. =D
In the short term, my Minolta Maxxum 7D will still be a significant part of my workflow. I prefer to shoot with two cameras –a wide angle lens on one and a medium or telephoto on the other– so until I get a second Nikon I’ll keep using the Minolta.
About four days after I got my D300 Nikon announced the D700. Sheesh! They didn’t even give me time to finish reading the manual before making a new camera. BUT, after looking at the specs, it appears that the only real difference between the two is that the D700 has a full-frame sensor, and that’s not reason enough for me to justify the price increase.
At the moment, the only Nikon lens I have is a kit lens (18-55 f/3.5-5.6) It looks kinda pathetic seeing such a small lens on a big camera, but it gets the job done for now. My goal is to get three new lenses and a second Nikon by the end of the year, so, if anybody is feeling generous…
