well, I've just got some cash together by begging & borrowing & am going to buy on eof the above as an upgrade from my d1x.
Which on would you recoomend, mainyl for outdoor portraits, but also..(the d1x fails miserably here) band photography ...dark venues.
I literally have enough to buy one or the other second hand, so please don;t suggest anything more expensive..and it has to be Nikon as I have several lenses thAT i CAN THEREFORE TRANSFER.
Thankyou in advance..very much appreciated

Easy choice D300s
Don't honestly think there is much between them - both great bodies......both now reatively cheap......I tend to use the 300s more often than the D2.....best of luck - either will be a huge step up from the 1x
No question. The '300s' is a quantum leap in technology.
(I have had both the D200 and now the D300)
Just to qualify my choice I exchanged my D2X for a D300 - not the S version and it was far superior
(I should have added that the D200 is derived from the D2(x) in sensor-terms and the D3xx evolution is, as stated, a quantum leap if only from the switch from CCD to CMOS-based sensor technology)
D300s, easy choice!
thats pretty categoric...thankyou!!!
Nice when you get such a degree of unanimity in response to a question VP.
With good D300 bodies now selling for round about the £300 mark, you really are getting a lot of camera for the money. Unless you are going for video capture, there is not much to be gained from the "s" version.
Thankyou Forum,..to be hinest, I have no interest in video at all.
.................... Am a little perturbed that its now a full frame camera ..which is what I'm used to....but........????
There are significant differences between the D300 and the S variant - if you care to look at the specs, not least of which is 7fps as opposed to 6, lower noise (slightly) and two card slots.... If you can, grab the 300s a much better option - better button layout too, but what do I know! I've used one daily since 2009 check the specs for yourself LOL.
Thankyou all folks...really apreciate your input
I've got a d300 and can recommend it. However, if you can go that little bit extra, why not try the d700? Full frame and less noise at high ISOs. Might be a better bet for the venue shoots.
