if you have kit glass you should think about upgrading your glass before the body

just because of your avvy, ill answer your question.

If you have good glass then either body will be good.

If you have ****ty glass, then buy better lenses, it will have more an effect on your image quality then your body does.

akira, you like rise against? minus respect

good glass, i'd say get a d300 just because it is a generation in sensors ahead of the d2whatever. d2 has a more professional build though.

bad glass, buy better glass

I used a d300 this past weekend. Seemed awesome. Unless your making money off photography I see no reason why you should buy something more expensive.
