thomas, leek, staffodshire moorlands Experienced amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Built like a tank, fantastic image quality,one of the best auto focusing systems on any dslr curently available, i like the dual card slots [compact flash, sdhc] the camera handles like a dream, nikon has now introduced the D7000, the D300s has a much better specifaction, ie: 51 point autofocus, against 39, on the 7000, the full camera built in full magnesium alloy body, the 7000 has just the front and back covers built this way, ok, the movie mode on the 7000 is better, but if like me, you buy a DSLR to take pictures, it;s got to be, the nikon D300s, a fantastic camera.
Bad points:
I cant find any, it was a bit expensive, but prices have recently dropped

Phil, Chester Experienced amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Build quality is excellent. Gives the camera a real pro feel. I was toying with the idea of getting the d7000 but I'm glad I got the d300s as I won't need to upgrade for a good few years.
Bad points:
None, well except the fact that it's such a good camera it's a bit too good for my level but after a few lessons and a few good reads of the manual I soon got the hang of it.

Dennis, Broughty Ferry Professional photographer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Very well built, easy to use and a huge improvement on the D200 I previously used. I particularly like the self clean sensor and the fact it is compatible with the rest of my Nikon gear.
Bad points:
None really it is a good all round camera but if I had to make a criticism it would be that the live view is a little bit fiddly to use, but I am sure as I get used to it I shall find it a valuable addition to have to a great camera.
