Good for you.
I'm going to try one out tonight at a minor league baseball game. I hear the quality at high ISOs is amazingly good.
I was on the fence - these things cost more than a "prosumer" camera should, and the rumor was that the price will go up in May (although that's just a rumor ) due to the falling U.S. dollar. I've been waiting for the price drop since last fall - and now they may go UP???
The D200 was on my short list, but everybody I spoke to said that the D300 is so far above the D200 that it's worth the leap.
I mighta been better off buying new glass for my D70S .
But it should keep me busy for awhile - the user manual is 400 pages...
I gotta be outta my mind...

Al If I win the lottery you and I will both have D300's and a nice set of lenses to go with them! I hear you have to play if you want to win. The most I've won playing the Mega Millions is three bucks though! I've put a lot more into it than that though!
JT I'm guessing you get to go where they let the press photographers go? I'd love to shoot from a better perspective like that during a game. My son starts baseball this weekend. It will be the first time I get to shoot him with my d40. Last year I had my sony p&s and took some decent pictures. I am really excited! The first few games are coach pitch though. The best shots from last year are when my son was pitching. Those are the ones that I am really looking forward to this year.
Got any tips on shooting sports? Especially eight year olds!
ive been trying to win the colorado power ball as well. last time it was at 275 million. if i would have won that everyone on here would have gotten something. i think its back at 80 million which i would love to have hell i wouldnt mind winning 10 bucks

The photo wells at the minor league park suck so I usually try to find an empty seat or shoot from the concourse. My favorite spot is in the front row behind the first base line dugout and from behind home plate. Sometimes I set up a remote camera on the third base line somewhere.
