    Maybe on the end he will start to use film, just for fun, and then sell D300

    Not really any advantage.

    Canon's simple: MF works on MF cameras, AF works on AF cameras.

    Nikon's simple: MF works on MF cameras, AF works on AF cameras.
    And as an extra, there is extensive, though not complete, compatibility between MF and AF if you want to mix them.
    If it's confusing, stick with AF lenses, as is necessary with Canon.

    i was thinking the same thing
    and i am looking for a first time poster

    and his backstory is : "i bought this beautiful camera the other week from this guy ..
    to be honest i just got it for the lens for my d300 ... the guy told
    me it wasn't going to work but i bought it anyways .. the lens didn't work right
    so i said what the heck and bought some film loaded it
    can someone help me process the film, it used to be easy with the display,
    and the anticipation is killing me to see how the images look.
    i haven't used the 300 in a week."

    I found myself in a similar situation last night, when I sold off my Yashica Mat EM TLR. I have 2 other TLR's so that one had to go, I never really bonded with it anyway.

    So, I put up an ad in a local photography forum and then a guy answered my ad, saying he's interested in buying it and that the price I asked for it was ok. I met him last night at a diner. He's young! Only 23 and he brought along a table-full of his friends, all of the same age. They had lots of DSLR's on the table, among them a full frame model of the digital variety, haha. I handed him the TLR and they inspected it, full of oooohs and aaahhs. I was feeling ever more curious and unable to help myself, I asked the guy who contacted me..."Do you shoot film?".."Are you going to use this TLR?". He said no. In fact, he's buying my camera for his 19 year old friend, who was unable to come & view the camera as he lived quite a distance away. Apparently, this 19 year old friend of his collects 'old cameras' like mine, and he has 3 other TLR's as a collection. He also has the latest Nikon DSLR, a D3s, with which he mainly shoots with. WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?????

    While showing those kids how the TLR works, and testing the shutter speeds & aperture, I felt useless. These kids they're never gonna appreciate and use the camera. They're never gonna understand how it works. They said film was 'too expensive'. I tried to talk them the other way around but I could see it was a lost cause, as they kept snapping away at my TLR with their latest DSLRs.

    Soon after that, I made excuses, took the money and left. I felt remorse, tons of it. In fact, there was a time back then when I wanted to take my TLR back and say "Hey, know what, the deal's off". I wanted to sell the camera to someone who would use it, appreciate it and cherish it. Not to some spoiled brats who will merely put it up on a shelf gathering dust.

    Well, at least I got a good price for it. Still, I could barely sleep last night. Sigh....

    That's Friggin Funny !!!

    If the image in the viewfinder is out of focus.
    You will automatically focus the lens properly.
    It doesn't get much simpler than that !

    I always follow the adage that when something no longer brings you joy, it's time to let it go.

    Or when yer really frickin' broke...
    In life you only get one great dog, one great car, and one great woman. Pet the dog. Drive the car. Make love to the woman. Don't mix them up.

    Wolfeye: you're right! In my case it was a mixture of both, didn't really gel'd with the camera, plus the wife's birthday is coming up next month. Haha.

    I only wish it could've gone to a nicer home, one where it'll be put to good use.
