I can't tell you how many hours I've spent adjusting my
viewfinder/mirror and learning the focusing idiosyncrasies of a
myriad of lenses, especially my wide aperture primes (28mm, 50mm,
85mm 1.4s etc.) A few minutes with the D300's AF lens fine tuning and
they are focusing spot on consistently MUCH more reliably than the
D200 ever has in the 2 years I've futzed with it. This feature alone
is worth the upgrade in my opinion!!!

.. I'm a little late to this dance, but the technique discussed and 'targets' included in this D200 BackFocus discussion are ideal for checking focus with the D300 .. the 'target' is at the end of the article (d'load the pdf file and print the page) ..
