After several months with a D40, and an increasing desire to do more than my D40 could give me (action shots, like football and other sports), I decided to take the plunge and get a D300. I got it for about $1330 from Cameta, which many of you probably know of. It won't arrive until probably next week, but I'm excited about it. It's obviously a big investment, but after struggling along (in a manner of speaking) without being able to use a wide range of lenses, it will be great to have more freedom and be able to do much more with my camera. I also picked up a monopod today for use with my sports photography. Any advice or thoughts on the D300?
