You have a D300 or D300s

  • Like what you've got: Reconsider. Yes, these cameras are fine up to a point (typically 11x14" prints and ISO 1600). But there's a very much improved camera awaiting you in the D500. 
  • Dislike what you've got: get a D500. The introduction of the D500 finally gives us a real update for the D300 models, and one that, as the number suggests, probably skips a generation in terms of overall performance (remember my basic advice: buy every other generation as an upgrade). You lose an internal flash but gain WiFi, but the real change is in sensor and autofocus performance, which is exactly where you want big gains.
