The 50mm AF lens will work on the D300 I have both. The D300 will meter the old manual lenses also so no light meter is needed. New cameras are the greatest.I miss using my old trusty Nikon FM2 35mm.But my eyes arent as good as they once were and I can focus as good.Been thinking my next toy will be a Nikon D300 but have to come up with the cash.I have a Nikor 50mm autofocus lens on my FM2 wonder if that would work on a newer camera.Also have ProSpec 70-210 zoom and a Sakar 28mm wide angle.These are old but work great.Havent used them in a few yrs film developing is getting rare and expensive.
Best investment you can make is a good light meter.I use a Gossen Luna ProF. Wish I hadnt sold all my lighting.
I can tell some dandy stories with pics to prove them from my past 40yrs of biking.
But technology got me again.The digital age change the way pics are done.For now I am using a Sony point shoot but it does ok for Ebay pics but lacks the control for cool stuff.
Try using a light meter and not use the internal built in one.You will be surprised at what you can do and what the effects are.The built in meter on my old FM2 does ok but you can get more control with a handheld meter.The 50mm AF lens will work on the D300 I have both. The D300 will meter the old manual lenses also so no light meter is needed. New cameras are the greatest.
Expect to give +-$800 for a low shutter count D300.
