Mine arrived early this morning, but only just got around to trying it out at home. Took some indoor shots of my cats and I really cannot beleive the quality, at ISO 3200 there is virtually no noise to speak of - amazing!

I will post some sample pics later.

Congrats Derek - perhaps all replies should be in green! Looking forward to posted examples.

Any test shots, what your opinion of the D300?

Very busy this weekend, so the planned trip never happened. I did take some test shot's - I'll upload shortly.

My initial feeling is it is a brilliant bit of kit, the live view is good, the rear screen is so good you can review your images 'properly' and the focus tracking is fast AND accurate - I tracked a very small (grey) bird across a grey sky and while it was too far away to get a good shot, it stayed in focus.

I'll do a proper review as soon as I can and post some quality images soon.

I'll look forward to seeing your images: I got my camera a couple of days ago. I'm sure there are loads of settings I haven't yet sussed out! I'm surprised how comfortable it is to hold - I tried the D200 some time ago and found it quite heavy, but this is really good. I'm certainly glad I didn't go for the 200...

I'm envious! I have a lot of saving to do - got to get a permanent job first...
