My dad complained about metering issues with his D80 when he had one. I thought matrix metering on the D300 was pretty accurate (but I was coming from a D100), but I usually used center-weighted anyway because I felt it worked even better.
Oh yeah, when I ordered my D90 the site said please enter your credit card so I did. Now the damn floppy drive is jammed! LOL
Gentoo, you have to fold it in half and stick it in the CF slot in your -card reader-. People, wise up!
