OKay idid it! Sold both of my D200 bodies and ordered my D300. Hoping it will fuel even more excitement so that by beginning of the year I'll jump for a D700. Not having it in hand yet I'd like to get somewhat schooled on the ins and outs. So I've already learned that I can disengage the D-lighting, seems that's a feature best suited for landscapes? Live view is optional, I take it? Is anyone shooting in TIFF, or is RAW still the better option? What is the Software Suite CD-ROM? what applications are on it? Capture NX? Thanks.
