d90 or used d300 for punk concerts with almost NO lighting
Apr 5, 2010

For light, I am talking about one 60 watt lamp in a room at night. I had a Pentax K-x and it just wouldn't focus. I know the Nikon system is better from some tests I did. I just don't know which would be the better camera for my needs. I prefer the D90 for its lightness, video and slightly better high iso. I like the D300 autofocus system (don't care about the weather resistance much), and AF correction.

I just don't know how much better the d300 autofocus is going to perform with, say, a 35mm f1.8 or a tamron 17-50 at 17mm & f2.8 in these conditions. Do you guys?
PS: any chance that the D90 successor will have the CAM3500DX?
