    yeah definitely.

    I called tonight and they said they'll send one out right away with the fastest shipping, but i still doubt it will be here tomorrow, which sucks because I paid for two day shipping to begin with. If it comes tomorrow I won't complain, but if it takes more than 1 day I'm going to call back and get refunded for shipping. :hs:

    I have no doubt it'll be replaced. Its just a question of when. I wanted it by tomorrow because I'm shooting events for school all week long and I really wanted to be able to use it.

    The lady I spoke with said the comments on the package were:

    "boxes torn and contents shattered"

    i'm guessing the camera got pretty fucked up.

    I guess after seeing some shots from the D300 at 1600, 3200 anything less looks awful.

    i love my d50 tho, i'm def keeping it.

    Damn man. That really sucks. Thats why I hate shipping anything electronic. I want to send my camera in sometime to get the mirror fix and the extended warranty but I dont want it to break. I suppose I can just get insurance on it though and itll all be ok...

    you can take some very useful 3200 ISO pics w/ the D300. :cool:

    Get ready to re-learn the camera though. Functions are nothing like your D50. :)

    I'm up for the challenge. I didn't know a single thing about SLR cameras when I bought my D50 a a year or two ago.

    Boxes torn? Was this through FedEx or UPS?

    I've seen UPS drivers do some scary things to boxes in the back of their brown vans.

    I think it's odd since the D300 box itself is relatively secure. Flap lock thing and formed cardboard inserts around the body with bubble wrap. Assuming they had that box within a shipping box with air cel packing...

    Hopefully they get the new one to you asap. Maybe they'll take better care of this one.

    That or it could have fallen from a plane. When I worked on the ramp at UPS for 3 years, a lot of loose packages go up in the bellies of those planes. If it was a big one like an Airbus, thats a good 20 foot fall. We had a 40~45inch plasma take a fall one night when it was really windy...Outcome was not good.

    I immediately knew it was UPS. UPS is the only company to lose, damage, or otherwise fuckup on the final leg of delivery.
