- Dec 2, 2009G'day Mike,
A D300 + 10.5mm is essentially identical to a D700 + Nikon 16mm fullframe fisheye. Both require 6 shots around plus 1 up (and 1 down if you want to patch the nadir) The final resolution on both setups is basically the same also.
I have both those pano rigs plus a shaved 10.5mm (permanently mounted to an 360 precision Atome ring) for shooting 4 shots around with the D700 on a pole.
The D700 + 16mm is better than the D300 as the D700 has greater dynamic range & lower noise levels than the D300 allowing you to pull more detail from the shadows etc.
Having said that... the cost difference between buying a 10.5 for your D300 and buying a D700 + 16mm is very significant. I don't believe it would be a worthwhile thing to do for the incremental increase in quality, unless money is no object.
