Re: ..and the answer is:

I used the P300 at the weekend. One mode I tried was the Scene Auto Selector and found that it produced a couple of over-saturated shots but mostly got it right. The exposure compensation I particularly like as it shows a live histogram on the screen so you can see what effect any adjustment makes and I love the fast wide-angle zoom lens.

Obviously it's no substitute for my D700 but I can't take that everywhere with me. The P300 solicited favourable comments from other photographers I met, it's quite well specified and produces acceptable results for a realtively cheap pocketable camera.
