I went from D300s to D600, well I guess I really just added a D600. I use the D600 more often than the D300, partly because it is the newer toy and partly because it is lighter and more versatile. When I pick up the D300s and shoot with it I often wish I had got a D700 instead of a D600, I love the body and control layout so much more than the D600. Once you download your images and open them up in light room, the control layout seems to not matter as much because the images are so good. The resolution in excellent and the amount of data you can pull from shadows before noise becomes a problem is staggering compared to the D300.

If I have good light, I still prefer the D300 because of the feel and control layout.... I probably should have got a D800.
