Re: tell him...

I've done that, and considered getting a Nikon myself. I borrowed a friend's D300 briefly and was quite impressed by the AF, even on a "crappy" lens (old-style 70-300). Even when it was lsow it was usre-footed. (Sorry about the typos, posting from a slow, slow computer)

The problem is the lenses. Neither the 80-400 or the 300/4 (which are the two we owuld consider, price-wise) are exactly right: the 80-400 is (by reputation) slow to focus and not totally sharp, and the 300/4 while fantastic optically has no IS.
