Hi Marty:

The D300 "is" a great camera PERIOD and needs no defense. I've seriously considered adding a D300/500 to my current Canon gear (I'm looking at the D300/500 as an "additional" tool and not a replacement ... all of my Canon gear is absolutely perfect to my satisfaction).

The problem I ran into was what I considered to be a ridiculous price for the 500 f/4 VR2 lens. To have a 1.5X body that will AF using an f/8 lens I was more than happy to pay the delta cost for a D300 and associated grip. However, I was not willing to pay for the high cost of the 500mm lens ... so I chose to vote with my wallet.
