    If I had the money, I'd buy it myself! But I never seem to have money when there is a great deal to be had! Lol

    Your right about the low light of the 300, this is why I keep my 3100 around. It works great for the low light shots.

    I had paid for the D300 at the time!, and the D300 collected dust, and more dust, until I sold it to raise cash for the D800,,

    funny thing,, I have been posting up on 500 PX,, and sometimes I notice the camera was the D300,, and I go wow,, the D300
    produces wonderful image, It held up well to the D700 except for the LOW light,, The D700 is clearly superior.

    except for the 1.5X for bird photographers,, I would go with a Used D700 vs a used D300,,

    The D700 remains a classic, and will stay there for a long time.

    but,, confesses, my D700 collects dust now,, the D800 is just that good!..

    and when I want the backup or lightweight,, I go with the D7000.

    Re: This is a D300 :)

    for its time the D300 was elite. today it isnt so relevant. I do know pros that use a D300. I would not shoot a wedding wtih that camera. its very limiting iso wise. cant shoot past 2000 without smear and heavy chroma noise. and flash is not the answer to everything.

    IQ between FF and DX is very visible. maybe the dynamic range. but I remember comparing my friends D3S to the D300 screens when shooting my first comeback wedding with him and just didnt understand why theres such a huge difference. something else altogether.

    D300 had its day. for a regular user its fine. but for a pro, you should not be using that camera. and no, I dont believe in "its the photographer not the equipment" its true partly. there's only so much a pro photog can do with lacking gear. sure a pro can get better results but the gear imo is what limits the photographer. many situations im in events I shoot that say that god I have great gear. and mostly it has to do with fast glass and cameras which allow me to shoot to iso6400.

    I would love a D300 / D7100 fusion or so, like a pro body with DX sensor.

    I'll say it this way.
    For me the D600 is the fullframe brother of the D7000
    Now a DX little brother of the fullframe D800 would be great.

    I only see 2 reasons why someone who buy DX. price, or heavy lens investment for DX. and maybe size but the D600 is the size of the d7000/7100. besides the prism. its a mistake to invest in DX imo. there's no future in it. OTOH, many are selling lenses for DX like the 17-55 for quite cheap. not cheap enough though IMO.
