Yehhhhhh, congratulations Angela. You'll have so much fun with it. And FedeX is very fast. 2 days is really within 48 hours. If you've ordered today then you should have it on Monday.

Re: That's done it then!

I used my D70s for the trip to Le Touquet, and what a difference! The D300 is easier/quicker and just better all round.

Well, it's a pretty grim day here so I'll need that high ISO by this evening!! Not had a chance to play yet, just held it in awe! But with a manual an inch thick I may just be holding it for a while yet!

Well if it's like me having the D80 and then go to D200. I'm awwing all the time. What a difference. And I certainly find the D200 easier to handle. Have fun with your new camera Angela.
