Its one of my favorites too...On my 1.7x crop DSLR is equivalent to a 60mm lens which is quite a flexible focal length:

This thread has some amazing photos. This is what a nikkor prime is for. Brings out the sharpest photos.

Well, the D300 is the same size as the D700, come to think of it, I think both are larger than a D3 if you use the vertical grips.

I dont think its too long on my 1.7x crop Sigma DSLR's...With any FF lens used on a crop format DSLR you just change how you think of them and the use you put them to taking the crop into account.
For example my Nikon 35mm f1.4 Ai-S becomes a fast 60mm equivalent normal so thats exactly what I treat it as, not as a wide angle lens as someone would with a FF DSLR.
Similarly my Canon FL 55mm f1.2 becomes a fast 94mm equivalent portrait lens so thats what I treat it as.
My Tamron SP 17mm f3.5 ultra wide angle becomes a 29mm equivalent wide angle, which is still very wide and as wide as I normally go.
My Sigma 14mm f3.5 ultra wide angle rectalinear becomes a 24mm wide angle, and 24mm equivalent on my crop DSLR is very wide indeed, often too wide, which is why I prefer my 17mm/3.5.

Incorrect. The D700 is bigger as it has a larger prism.

Weight of D300 is 825 grams, D700 is 995.

Logic - some great examples of what the lens is capable of, in capable hands.

DSG - one of your pictures really makes me giggle. Here in Dubai people traditionally haven't been great at road signs and directions. Therefore everyone is directed by landmarks, and roundabouts are known by the statue standing in the middle of them (fish roundabout, coffee pot roundabout, clock tower roundabout)

How I would love to direct people by saying "turn left at cock roundabout"!!!
