    Keep D300s or part ways since I have my D700 and D500?

    Wondering if I should part ways with my beloved D300s, she served me faithfully for some time, but I have not used her in some time.
    Should I offer her up to another more well deserved home where she will be loved the same way I loved her. The smooth way of pressing her buttons, the quiet way she snaps her way making beautiful images. Her speedy sense of image requests.... What a harsh decision to make.

    I'm not a pro photographer. I just play one on TV.

    I think everyone should follow and do. Please do not assume we know what's in your camera bag, I left my magic mind reading hat at the repair shop because it does not work past my computer screen.

    If you are not using it pass it on to someone who will love her as much as you did.

    Maybe I will... not sure if there are any generous loving photographers though that will love her as much as I did though... and give her the experience that will benefit both.

    I finally retired my D300 several months back and went with a D7100. Even though it is my secondary camera, it is considerably more capable than the D300 in most respects, especially above ISO 400.

    Consider having your D300 converted to Infrared...

    Since you only list the D300 and D700 in your profile, you should think about keeping your D300 as a backup. What happens to your photography if your D700 has an issue and needs to go to the repair shop? If you keep the D300, you can at least keep shooting. Heck, I am still keeping my D200 for that very reason.

    I sold my D300 I've had my D300s and I have a D500.... So I am capable should anything happen to the D700.
