    OK Computer I seem to remember you saying in a prior thread that you couldn't afford a new camera so it is only natural that you would be jealous of my future purchase. I know several members here girth, xenon supra, fast brunout just purchased D300's so it is obvious for me to turn here to get answers...Obviously I am familiar with BH Adorama etc. But I am looking for the best reputable seller. For all I know there might be a good deal or new reputable seller.

    can't hurt to look around amazon like mentioned. If you're a member of NikonCafe, there's a guy there selling his barely used one (backup to his D3) for $1450 IIRC

    No need to be a douche bag now that I'm going to have a D300 too :hsugh:

    You're probably one of those tools who would be like, "Oh great more people getting a D300 I'm no longer elite :mamoru:"

    I'm confused at how this thread is retarded :ugh:

    I got to spend some time with a D300 today. First time mind you...

    I liked it and it reaffirmed my belief that it would be my next camera.

    What is so retarded about that :ugh2:

    Yeah I did some extensive reading on the two and the D700 doesn't seem to fit my needs as much as the D300 does especially considering cost.
