Re: What I Like on D200 & D300

My point was that I'm better off with two cameras a D300 and NEX.  One optimized for max IQ, low light, action shooting - the other optimized for small and portable, but still a very quality sensor.

If you try to put both optimizations into the same camera, you get an albatross that is best at none.  If you are only going to buy one camera, then you just have to decide which tradeoffs you want to favor.

I agree totally with what you write.  Is why I am willing to accept the size and weight of the D200 and D300.  I like them, they are robust and they do me.  I sacrifice on size and weight and accept that.  Still doesn't stop me wishing for a slightly smaller and lighter DSLR.  I did look at the Sony Nex, along with many other cameras.  I prefer the Nikons.  I actually find the size of the Leica M240 a really good size for me.  Unfortunately it just does not do what I want Very well.
