Re: D300s initial testings = positive

It would be nice to see if there's a firmware update for the D300 that addresses at least the AF aspect.

I've long had an opportunity to familiarize myself with the D300's AF system and impressed by what it can do. It's 51 point system is amazing for taking portraits, picking out faces clearly. And in other arrays it can be very nice, but I have noticed often that initial delay. At times it would refuse to let me press the shutter as it was "thinking" - should have had it on C. But the delay - in addition to the decimal of a second that it does take to AF when things do get going - is something I didn't experience with the D2 series I've used and something that has caused me to lose shots (sometimes user error, but definitely not always:)

Perhaps with the D300s is due to improved processing power and is something firmware won't fix.
