    Just received my D300s today. Love it. So many features and improvements. I am upgrading from a D80 so you can quess how delighted I am. Like the dual cards and the choices you have in how to use the cards. Can’t wait to put it through a field test.

    I’m picking up my D300s tomorrow. I’m finally upgrading from my trusty workhorse the D50. A real kicker for me was the SD card support. Can’t wait to take it out shooting this fall.
