Re: Nikon D300 versus Nikon D800

Thank you so much for taking the time to provide feedback to my question. It was excellent. I know I don't really need a new camera. I'm 72 and photography is just a hobby. But, you can't take your money with you. My kids will just inherit a Nikon D800. My current D300 has nearly 80,000 actuations. I must admit, I was expecting some image improvement. I do very little printing. My focus is mainly birding and I am my own worst critic and seldom satisfied. I shoot mostly with a 500mm Nikkor lens on a Wimberley tripod but I feel the images fall short above a 60% crop. I thought that the D800 resolution would help improve the image at 100% crop. But from what I'm reading that may not be true. I realize nothing beats being close to your subject but in the birding world that is not always the case.

Thank you again for the constructive comments.
