As stated above - the asking prices of used D300 seem to be somewhere around $600.00...

You have 2 options (IMHO):

1 Sell now and get what you can.

2 Wait and get less and use as a backup.

IF (big if) Nikon comes to market with a D400 the used values of D300/D300s will most likely plummet even further. Additionally, IF Nikon produces both a D7000 AND a D300s replacement well, the bottom falls out even harder on the used values of D300/s.

The latest rumors seem to indicate that a D7000 replacement will be coming out soon. That said, now would be the time to act. Unfortunately, it seems as if there are quite a bit of used D300's in the market right now.

B+H has them listed at $569 (highest priced one and they probably paid 1/3 - 1/2 of that for it): http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/800913527-USE/Nikon_25432_D300_SLR_Digital_Camera.html

Ebay? You might be able to get $500.00 : http://www.ebay.com/itm/Nikon-D300-12-3-MP-Digital-SLR-Camera-Black-Body-Only-/121056759773?_trksid=p2047675.l2557&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEWAX%3AIT&nma=true&si=ec7dAg0VjLn3oyvLHl0hUBN%252FvMk%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc 27K clicks.
