Hi Steve

This is a really difficult question to answer as each of the cameras is targeted at different types of photographer. The D300, D700 and D3 cameras are probably the technologically most advanced but each one has a feature that sets it apart from the others even if that is 'only' the build quality.

For me, the D3 is the 'best' simply because of the work I do but that might not be the same for you or for any other photographer.

I've not been much help have I? Grin

The one you can afford to buy. Smile You'll learn more from having the camera and using it than you will from saving up for a better one.

For me, as a macro shooter, it had to be the D300. Crop sensor benefits and all that. But I'd love to get my hands on an F6

For an amateur shooting everyday things and not working at an advanced level the D90 has a lot going for it.

Really got no idea, owned a couple of fm2`s in the past for film use I would have thought the F5.

lol. My general rule of thumb is to ignore anything Rockwell ways.

A D3x could be cool though...

For me its gotta be the D200. Its built like a tank. Mine gets thrown about, bashed into rocks, and occasionally dropped, and its still fine.
Great IQ too.
Although I'd love to get a D300 or a D700, I don't feel the need to get one. The D200's still plenty of camera for me, and I've got to know its little quirks.

D70 was a crackin' little camera too though.

Inevitably the best Nikon/Canon/fill in as applicable camera is often the most expensive one you can afford to buy. A D3x is for me the holy grail, but we can't justify almost 6000.

We have at present a Nikon D50, D100 and D200 - all of which do their jobs very well indeed. We have others in our collection, my favourite of which is an old Olympus OM10.
