    At the moment I am currently using a Nikon D100, I am looking to upgrade
    would love a D3 however they are a bit out of my price range at the moment,
    so I was looking at a D300. I would love some opinions on the D300, or some
    advice on another suitable camera. I primarily take sporting images.
    Cheers

    Buy one. Its the best camera out there other than the D3.
    The only real difference is the D3s exeptional high ISO noise.

    I sold a D200 to buy mine and its in a different league. Read:

    I am not Nikon user, but have read that Nikon has finally released a
    better digital camera Nikon D300 which is better with NOISE at high ISO. And
    if you don't have lot of money invested on good Nikon lens, then I would
    suggest to look at Canon system which is usually cheaper than Nikon. Example
    the Canon 40D many people compare it with Nikon D300 but about 1/2 the
    price, same with lens system. And Canon has always handled low-ight lot
    better than Nikon.

    Also, point your browser to web page like www.dpreview.com to read more
    about Nikon D300 and others (if) you want to compare Nikon D300 with
    other's).

    I know what you mean about the Canon models having less noise than the Nikon
    models, but although I like Canon pics myself, there is something surreal
    about their 'clean' images. All that noise-free photo stuff can sometimes
    make a photo look quite 'bland' and give it a flat look at times, whereas
    the higher noise levels in the Nikons seem to contribute something to the
    overall look and 'feel' of the picture. There's a sort of more realistic,
    textured look to the Nikon shots and I particularly like this in portraits
    where skin and hair shows up looking so natural. It is also very evident in
    landscapes where we see the likes of rocks etc.,. I also prefer to see the
    'grain' in the Nikon skys, especially blue skies, whereas the Canon is very
    pure and creamy. I am not a techie photographer, so don't have the knowledge
    to word this any other way, but these are the things I notice when comparing
    the two makes of camera.
    I do like both makes, but they are just different....'not
    better....'different.
