RE: Masterclass: Nightspotting/ Nightphotography

I'm more one for long exposures at night (showing a "path" of the plane landing/taking off). For this, I bring my Nikon D90, 24-7mm lens, tripod, and remote release. I'm usually at around f/8 and over 10 seconds, and due to the long exposure, a low ISO works well, making the picture good quality. I ...

RE: Nikon D90 Vs D300

Ok, thanks guys.
I guess my question was, 'is the difference in camera quality worth the difference in price', and I'm pretty sure the answer is yes; the increased price of the D300 is worth it, right?
Thanks for your help.
