As well built as an F3?
Give over, my F3 "Dinosaur" will be working many years after this generation of digital junk is in a landfill
Oh Yeah. The one that has had at least one firmware upgrade since its launch a few months ago.
That when compled with the AF Problems with the 5D2 seems to me to be a sign that they release stuff before its ready.
I have a D700 and it is great. Video? Not for me thanks. One of my photo buddies is biting the bullet and selling his Canon gear after his 5D2 shutter failed for the second time. He spent a weekend with my D700 and that made his mind up for him. Sod Canon and Hello Nikon.
mines the one with a load of Nikon gear in the pockets.
What I don't need is you bastards telling me about a decent Nikon DSLR. I love my old Nikon film SLR and am trying not to be tempted right now. Nikon seem to make admirablysolid cameras which provide great results with minimal hassle.
I hate you guys :)
You think the F3 is tough, had an F1 fall from a table ~42" land on its head.
Had a dent in it, but other than the cosmetic dent, it still works like a charm.
Now try that with any of the newer cameras.
A hand grenade because thats how tough Nikon products are.
BTW, while you could modify your old bayonet mounts, not worth the price.
Then you'd appreciate this line:
"This, combined with the magnesium alloy chassis, makes the D300s reminiscent of some of those tanks like the F3, from a bygone film age."
Actually I used to shoot with an F1 and then the EL and ELW.
Considering what it will cost to actually process film, I'll gladly take the digital cameras any day.
As to the other poster talking about using your old lenses. More than likely not.
It depends on how old your lenses are.
