Re: Resistance was futile

So how did you justify the D3 over the D300 then Colin ?..... or was it just "stuff it, I want it "

Re: Resistance was futile

The main reason was for the high ISO capability which is much better than the D300. This will obviously be useful for weddings in dimly lit churches but I have also been recently appointed as the official photographer to the British Equestrian Federation and have a series of major indoor shows during the summer where the light is variable and that's putting it politely! Whilst the D300 coped well with the stallion show I did at Easter the arena was reasonably well lit compared to some.

Plus I wanted it!

Re: Resistance was futile

Grrrr...I'm not sure you should be allowed to buy a D300 and a D3. What's gonna happen to poor Mr 300 now?

At the moment it will be mostly the 70-200mm VR as the 17-55mm will put the camera into crop mode. With that and the 17-55mm on the D300 it will be a pretty even coverage and that is the combo I will be using at a wedding on Saturday (plus the 10.5mm on the D200).

I'm keeping an eye out for a used Nikon 28-70mm f/2.8 so if you hear of any......

I'll be at Badminton International Horse Trials at the beginning of May if you're around and want to have a play.

Sounds fair enough to me! Well done on being appointed too, a nice steady flow of work which I am sure you are chuffed about. I had a play with the D3 a while back and was suprised just how light it felt, serious bit of kit though!

For shame!!! Really, if you've got a D3, you should pair it with the newer 24-70. I tried the 28-70 on a D3 and there was a noticeable difference with respect to vignetting, corner sharpness and more. The 24-70 was by far the better lens.

Of course - everyone knows this now and they're hard to come by, but I'd personally hold out for one.
