"Although the fine detail of ergonomics can come down to personal preference and hand shape/size, the basics are universal"

I have a Nikon d300s, what I found was if your using it in low light and changing the cf memory card it is very easy to insert the new card the wrong way as I found much to my cost as it cost me over £200 to get it fixed as the guarantee does not cover this so you have to be very careful when changing that card, otherwise its a great camera

This camera is just amazing. Even though it is almost obsolete now, it still kicks ass! The only thing I don't like is that the noise becomes just horrible at ISO higher than 1600 - everything else is just perfect with this camera. But you can still take great photos even in low light using external flash. I really love my D300s, it is the product of superb quality and reliability.
