He hasn't always been so clear about it, and he admits that. He really nails what is going on in this site here (and he does still pay attention to DPReview):

"But here's the thing: many of you were excited by the D300 back in 2007 when it first appeared. It took great images, you said (and I said). Well, thing is, it still takes great images. Yes, there may be something that takes somewhat greater images now, but realistically, the only real liability I see in a D300 today is that it is weak at ISO 1600 and 3200 compared to current cameras.

For some of you, a D300 update that fixed that problem would be enough. No new features: just make it work better at higher ISO values (which also implies that it would have more dynamic range at lower ISO values). That, I think, is at the heart of the D300 user frustration. And that's likely to be "fixed" when the D400 appears."
