It didn’t take long for Nikon to fire back with a slew of announcements of their own. They announced the NEW D300 and D3 and some new lenses. Of course the camera that caught my eye (and hobby budget) was the D300. Once again they seemed to have blurred the lines between the $1,800 D300 and $5,000 D3. Now I have some real comparing to do between the Nikon D300, Canon 40D and Canon 5D. I really want to see some sample images from the Nikon D300 at higher ISO’s. If the image quality has improved then it would be a no brainer to stick with Nikon as I already have an investment in Nikon gear.
The good news for all of us consumers is that this competition is good!
