So, I kinda skipped out on work an hour early to catch the sunset ; )
Can you blame me? I mean, I just got a D300, fer cryin out loud!
So far it's been an absolute joy to shoot with. The large viewfinder makes it much easier to compose and level landscapes vis-a-vis the D70. The autofocus is lightning fast and intuitive to play around with. I bought an MC-30 remote shutter release, and thought at first I would miss my wireless remote. No way - this one has the shutter half-press function that was sorely missing from the wireless remote.
And the image quality has been stunning, as well. I plan to take it out this evening again to shoot some long exposures under the moon. That should be the real test ; )
