I'd give it at least a year after it becomes available before I'd even think about buying one. Probably far longer. That way, other people can find out about potential autofocus issues, oil spots, banding etc. etc. Besides, my D300 is still an excellent camera and will be for years to come.


David, you certainly touched on something that I'm a bit fearful of, but I"m hoping that the QC issues will have been addressed. And you have a huge advantage over me in that you have a great camera in the meantime. I don't. I've got a D80 that doesn't meet the needs for my type of photography.

I was considering a D600 to replace my D200 but instead, I got a used D300s for $800 with only 823 counts on the shutter; it's practically brand new! I am totally elated because the D300s is a fantastic camera and will be for some time to come. I do want FX though but since I'm not impressed with the D600 and don't want to fork out $3.2K for a D800E, I am considering finding a used D700 body similar to my D300s.
