D300 build quality - How many pics have you taken with your D300?
Sep 7, 2010

The first photo was taken with my D300 on March 20, 2008. I'm now at 41,337 'shutter actuation's.'

The build quality is excellent. I have never dropped it from waist level to ground or anything worse. The only thing to 'break' on the whole camera was the plastic mouse used to move focus points. It sheared off the back of the camera the day before I went to the white mountains in NH this past July. Of course!! Never underestimate the power of electrical tape for a field repair. The tape is still there...a cheaper alternative to the $160 repair job...

Perhaps my best photos (or fondest) are from my trip to California two summers ago. Here are two pics:

Looking over little Yosemite valley from Glacier Point @ Yosemite National Park. Summer Solstice 2008 - Full Moon and star trails:

Five days later took this of sun setting over the golden gate bridge with the 70-200 VR lens:
