D80 vs. D300 metering and dynamic range

Has anyone upgraded from the D80 to a D300? If so, have you found the metering more consistent with better dynamic range? I've been very frustrated with both on my D80. So much so, I've strongly thought about scrapping digital and just going back to shooting Velvia and having fun again. I never had these issues shooting film. With my D80, I'm having to check the histogram after every shot, which certainly takes away a lot of the joy of going out shooting, not to mention the LCD is almost impossible to see in daylight.
