Should work just fine:

Are you getting the kit lens with it too?

Were you looking at the 18-55 3.5 -5.6?

They're going for about 50 bucks on E-Bay.

http://cgi.ebay.com/NIKON-AF-S-18-55...QQcmdZViewItem

I see you're a photog student - if you stick with the 55-200 mm that's the 35mm equiv of @ 80-300; don't ya think you're really going to need something wider?

Tell ya what I'm going to do.

Shoot me a p.m. with your address.

I'll send you my 18-55 from my D70S. No charge.

How's that for Jeeper solidarity?

I don't use the lens anymore and it's taking up space in my bag.

No filter, but I'll include front 'n rear end caps.

Sigh. Somebody talk me down from the ledge .

The Yankee Dollar is headed south; Nikon is building (and selling) 70,000 D300 bodies a month; they aren't being discounted...and there may be a price increase in May.

Sigh.

For three days I've been hounding reviews and websites looking at that thing.



Tonight I came with a heartbeat of going over to my favorite camera shop to get some 'hands on' experience...but traffic was backed up on the freeway so I got a reprieve.

$1800 bucks for a camera body...

I gotta be outta my mind.

Sigh

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.

Post pics!

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!

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.
