I was getting tired of focus issues, and the poor high ISO performance of my D200. And seeing the results other sport shooters were getting with thier D300s wasn't helping. So I picked up a D300 on June 17th, just in time for the baseball/softball tourney blitz, my busiest time of the year. Shot my first game with it that night, on the 'shady' field. It was nice to crank up the ISO to 1000, and not worry about noise. These have had no NR done to them. Just some auto levels and contrast adjustments A couple more at 1000 One at 1600, just before the storm Needless to say, I'm happy with it. And with the better focusing, my keeper rate is higher. As I said, first game with it was June 17th. Last game was my 4th game of the night on July 3rd. Last shot was #13,869. I've got a few softball games next week, but after that, I'm done. I need a break. Here's a cool 'ball on bat' shot showing the compression of the ball; ISO 250 Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
