I disagree.

I don't actually disagree with the conclusion that it won't threaten the D300. However, the reason has nothing to do with 5 fps vs. the 6 fps of the D300. Yes, I know you can increase the speed to 8 with the grip. Who knows whether there won't be similar add-ons with the Sony.

I think that things like the AF module will be much more important to D300 buyers.

Sony is making progress, but it is not a huge leap forward in
processing speed. I reckon its flagship model will probably have a
12mp full frame sensor to keep the frame rate at 5fps or slightly
faster. That probably means it won't be competing against the D3 but
would more likely be targeted at the Canon EOS 5D. We will likely
see full frame prices drop because of competition.

The preview link in dpreview doesn't work for now.
