deciding between D300 and D90...
Nov 11, 2008

Hi!

I'm deciding to upgrade my D80, and i had those options. My budget is tight, but i can stretch a little.

What i wanted:
NO amp noise.
Better high iso performance. I do not expect "magic", tough.
Fine tuning of lenses.
A robust shutter that can handle a lot of clicks.

What i liked them to have:
Better resolution for lcd review of focus (i have AI manual lenses).
CA correction in camera. (jpeg on D300)

Also, another thing:
Look at this:
http://www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/d90/iso-3200.htm

Taking those images with a grain of salt, because its "ken", it is really that noticeable the difference? it looks like the D300 has NR HIGH, but it doesn't. Also y looked one, and two and three times to the images in the reviews of the D90 and D300, and they looked almost the same to me (and for my eye, D300 was a little superior, thanks to its better aa filter on the sensor).

I'm really bought for the D300..even if i have to sell my shoes to get it haha.

What do you think?

Thanks in advance!
