Found an almost new D300 for a bargain price.
Jun 26, 2013

I could resist a D300 for a bargain price.

I have been a D300 owner for 4years and absolutely love the camera and earlier this year got a NEW D7000 for video use. Like a lot of people here I was frustrated with the AF on the D7000, tracking motion was/is a challenge where as my D300 just makes the shot. My D7000 get used for video and shooting gigs in low light. D300 remains my go-to camera for almost everything else.

A local shop had a used D300 for sale for a few weeks so I decided to go take a close look. Owning one myself for many years, I was merely curious on behalf of a friend who had been looking for one. I took a CF card with me for a closer look to see how many shots it had taken. The camera was in fantastic condition so the test shot was taken, I dashed home to check out what it had shot. To my amazement it had done only 447 clicks. I called by again and made an offer for it as it had been there for a few weeks. I am extremely happy to have picked up an almost NEW camera for 1/4 of the price my other cost me. It even came with two batteries...

I was such a good deal that I could not let pass me by...

I'm not not really concerned if a D400 never happens. I have my D300's to keep me happy.
