i have a d200, i got it in feb. my mom owns the d70 and is upgrading and giving my dad her camera. so i suggested giving her my new camera and her buying me the d300 when it comes out. and well she was cool with the idea. she was jsut going to get the d80 but now shes getting a nicer camera too
the d40 is like $600 to $800 depending on the lens, i dont know how much the d40x will be though, which is the same megs as the d200 but its not nearly as fast. the d80 is about a grand, the d200 is 1600 and the d300 is 1800. there is a huge difference between the d40 and the d300.. u should probably read more before u buy ur cameras.
I wasn't suggesting a switch, but shedding light on the fact that it's "Inexcusably expensive. A great camera, but you don't gain much on the 40D which will be $500 less." Whenever Canon has upgraded a camera the price stays about the same and the old versions drops in price.
If there was no 40D there wouldn't be anything to compare the D300 to in the market.
She was asking what we thought and that's what I think.
Did you read the previous post that said "I WASN'T suggesting a switch"?
Everyone is so sore that I've pointed out a flaw in the D300 which is price point. I also said it was a great camera for all the Nikon users out there. When you ask for opinions you should praise those who have both + and -.
As for xnick...How could type something so silly. I understand having a die hard love for a particular brand, but to say that it will always be better takes consumer intelligence out of the equation and allows companies to set their price point higher than necessary.
i have some money. thank u grandpa. its not my parents money. i am actually paying my parents morgage right now. so before u kids think my mom and dad buy me whatever i want. i buy whatever i want, BC ITS MY MONEY!!
