stupid to buy d300(s) now? :-D

Hi guys!

From July 1st, I am going on a trip to Slovakia, Hungary and probably also Czech Republic - with my D70s, which after treatment with compressed air in the card-reader seems to have recovered from the CHA/CHR/For error.

The thing is that I have the cash for a D300s body right now, but new ones are for some reason sold out everywhere, but there seem to be plenty of 2nd hand bodies are for about 75% of new price and D300 for about 60-65% of new price, often with warranties still.

But now there is all this talk about a new body in end of july, so I can not make up my mind - if I refrain from buying a "new" body right now, I can extend my trip and spend more money on experiences and photo opportunities with my D70s.

What would you guys do in my situation? Shorter trip with better quality pics - and some video - or longer trip with "less" quality? Hmm-...
