I am in China again where it is raining lots. Rain, however, makes for nice photo opportunities and it should not be a problem for the D300s and the Nikkor 17-55 f/2.8 lens, which are both water resistant. Problem is after a couple of hours shooting in the rain my D300s died! And soon I am going trekking across Sothern China to some of the most amazing photo opportunity places. Oh well, never mind, I have a D60 as a backup. And hopefully the D300s will come back to life.
