    Can anyone comment on the suitability of the Lexar 8GB and 16GB CF cards for
    use with the Nikon D300 camera? This camera appears to be quite a memory
    pig, especially with the 70 - 200 f2.8 Nikor lens.?

    How does the lens directly make a difference.? It's really a function of
    subject for all but uncompressed 14 bit raw.

    I fail to see what effect the lens would have on the camera's use of
    memory. Selection of RAW or compressed jpgs, image size...etc. But lens?

    Any size CF card will work fine in any camera that takes CF cards.

    It is especially a problem when shooting whales with the 70-20 f/2.8
    lens. We went whale watching with this lens and every photo was more
    than 2 gigabytes. Even the 5x7 prints weighed more than 100 lbs apiece.

    It is true that a sharper lens makes larger jpeg files.

  7. Well, of course. I took a few landscape shots in Sequoia National Park
    and it rook four people to lift the D200 back into the car.

    I'm having problems with my 70-20 lens, by the way. It seems that the
    more I zoom in, the smaller the subject gets.

    No wonder my lens has been acting funny ever since it came back from
    Nikon's service center!

  10. I don't use "lol" because I rarely laugh aloud. Your reply has created an
    exception: lol. :)
