Obviously people are going to vote cold due to the amount of money involved, but what they don't understand is this isn't a Canon 500D, it's a Semi professional camera that for 2 years held its price at £1100 (body only) due to its pure features and handling.

I have had it since March 2008, bought at £1095 with a voucher and have finally found an SLR I can stick with. A brilliant camera and for £749 (or £719.04 after 4% cashback from either Topcashback or Quidco) its an amazing bargain.

Heat added.

BTW, anybody know good web links to undersanding the differences in each of the Canon and Nikon ranges.

Interestingly I was just browsing for the D300 detail and came across this comparison

Mind you prices approx:
D3 £3,000
D90 £650
D300 £749
D200 £650

My interest in gig photography and I need good high ISO performance.

BTW great price for the camera anyway

You need faster lenses for gig photography, which is where Canon are slightly cheaper (not much but about £100-150 diff).

If you don't know much about SLR's, don't get a D3, you won't understand how to use it. I have been using SLR's (both film and digital) for over 10 years, I once had a Nikon D2H's for sports photography and got rid of it 2 months later due to its complicated functions.

A D90 has the same processor as the D300 and also has the ability of recording HD video (If you need that).

The main difference between the D300 and the D90 is the build of the camera and some additional features, the D300 has no HD video, but if you are buying a D300 you aren't buying it to make videos!

£650 for a D200 is very expensive, it is over 4 years old.

[url]www.dpreview.co.uk[/url] is a good site for reference.

Or you can visit my website, all galleries from March 2008 onwards were taken with my D300 and usually my Tokina 12-24mm F4 lens... [url]www.photoaddiction.co.uk[/url]

cold because no stock anywhere i've tried.

you can argue the price is hot but the price itself is not enough to ask for a heat otherwise john lewis could have a the same body out for 1 quid and no stock available anywhere.

and i agree the price is very hot - even when D300 body only was at it's lowest, it never went below 799 quid in the uk for as long as i am aware of.

D300s not long released. Has a few extra features, hence the price drop for the D300.
This is a fantastic price for this camera. Heat added.

Yes, I am considering a Nikon D90 for it's high ISO performance combined with this Sigma zoom lens, any comments?

If you want to find out more about Canon and Nikon camera's, the following will be worth a look:

By the way, great price for this camera, if anyone is lucky enough to get one, good luck. The D300 is a great camera and close to the price of the D90 there is no contest unless you 'must' have a DSLR that can record video!

i got my D300 + 18-200 VR lens + a few accessories (fast 16Gb, 8Gb card, bag, UV filter etc) for £1,200 in June on holiday, no VAT. It was a few hundred more back here.

this is a good price.
