Looks like great stuff from Nikon. The D300 has a 922,000-pixel 3-inch live view LCD! This is quite amazing. Also new is a sensor cleaning system (high-frequency vibration), a 100% viewfinder, 12 megapixels, 14-bit A/D converter, 51-point AF system, and lots of other goodies. Much more impressive to me than the Canon 40D. http://www.dpreview.com/news/0708/07082313nikond300.asp The D3 is Full-Frame (finally) but only 12 megapixels -- but very high sensitivity up to ISO 25,600! http://www.dpreview.com/news/0708/07082312nikond3.asp Though I have a D200, I am sooo inclined to jump to the D300.
