    You probably won't regret it. Good move on keeping the lens and flash. The D300 is definately a step up, and we can second guess your needs all day, but at the end of the day it's what you are happy shooting. It does have a confidence effect on your creativity as well. When I'm feeling confident I can shoot just about anything with greater success than when I'm tentitive.

    Hell I still shoot with the D70, and when I do I sometimes I can't remember why I bought the D80. Then I zoom the last shot on the (massive... comparitively) D80 display, and print those ISO1600 shots at 8 x 10 and the memory returns... real quick.

    I have used the D300 a couple of times and I would buy it in a heartbeat if I could justify it. A great new tool in your arsenal.

    Way to go.

    Technically in Omaha...in reality, between Elkhorn and Gretna.

    How do you like the Tamron 17-50 f/2.8? I've been thinking about something in that range...either the Nikon 17-55 or the Sigma. Thoughts on either...vs. your Tamron?

    Tamron hands down over the Sigma.

    Vs the Nikon...well you'll have to justify the cost. Many can't. Therefore I opted for 90% of the Nikon 17-55 for 35% of the price.

    Wow! The D300 is one heck of a camera! Had it only a few hours and already loving it. Yes, much more complicated than the D80, but AF is screaming, images are wonderful (whith no adjustments as of yet) and 6 fps rocks. Can't wait until I get the battery grip and plunk in AA's to hit 8 fps!

    Note: My local camera shop ain't none too pleased with Nikon's advertising the D300 can hit 8 fps with the battery grip and battery from D3. You also need D3 charger and another door to make fit on the MB-D10. Total cost for grip, battery, charger, door = ~$800! Lots of jack for 2 extra fps.

    I'll be putting AA's in that grip for now
