Wow... the D300 will have better AF, better glass to use and a pro support system behind it, not to mention decades worth of used glass to tap into.

The 40D is cheaper, also has great glass to support it and CPS is excellent.

Both the D300 and the 40D will do very well in the next year, though I think Nikon has the edge IF they can meet the production demand.

The Sony is kinda cool, but I really don't think it offers anything compelling compared to the proven competition, unless its high ISO images were amazing (which they won't be compared to the other bodies).

BTW, someone mentioned 8 fps not being that big of a deal for the D300... I think it will sell to A LOT of pros based on its AF system and frame rate alone. Remember the legions of pros that used the N90s and F100 over the F4 and F5? Nikon has a lighter, cheaper pro option now, while the 40D, by my estimation is still an amatuer camera.
