agreed, my D300 is 5 yrs old ,and if it were possible for nikon to simply insert a modern more (ISO/DR) capable sensor ,it would kick ass once again ,the D300 has never been bettered (as a DX) camera ,and the only thing lacking is a better sensor .

the controls are true pro layout with a whole host of other functions ,that leave lesser APS-C cameras behind . biuld and balance are also perfect .

and at twice the frame rate of the D800 ,combined with the reach (1.5 crop) makes it a perfect sport / wildlife camera . if only the sensor was better ,are you listening nikon ,there is no need for major changes , the D300 series is a gem ,just give us 18-24mp ,with the assosiated tweeks and I for one be happy if everything else stays the same .

I'd give Nikon $1000 if I could send in my current D300, have them install a new shutter and (as imagined above) an improved 18-24 MP sensor with gains in IQ, DR and high ISO. Leave all else the same and I'd be happy for several years to come.al D300s and I'd buy that upgrade for all 3 of them.

...If only this were possible.
