Be proud of your D300/s
Sep 27, 2012

I just compared the studio sample images of the D600 vs D300s vs D7000 and Pentax K5/K30/Kx. To my eyes the D600 has the worst results. Look at the eyes of the queen for instance. The D7000 and K5 have by far the best resolution and detail. The D300s is there with them despite its age, but looses out as the ISO climbs above 1600. In my opinion all Pentax models I checked, even the amateur Kx and K30 have better results, Jpegs and RAW.

If the alleged D400 is going to have a similar sensor (but smaller) to the D600, and if my observations are correct, then there is no point getting excited about the D300/s replacement... but either move to the D7000 if high ISO is your priority or if focusing is more important be proud of your D300s.

I am.
