    Sux because I just got my 70-200 2 weeks ago and I'm sure this will cause a huge price drop on the used market for the old ones.

    I have yet to meet an owner of a current model unhappy enough to let it go for the upgrade. I'm sure there are a few, but small number is all I'm saying.

    Lots of people are very unhappy with the corners on FX. Many of them pros with high profile websites like Thom Hogan and Bjørn Rørslett. Nikon had to update it.

    pretty much, bunch of pictures of it have been flying around. From the specs of it, it doesn't really look too much different than the D300 w/ Video. I guess I see the point, I just don't see a point of getting it for my needs. :dunno:

    Hopefully the D300s causes used D300 prices to come down, I could use a little extra reach for Africa at the end of the year :x:

    Of course the 70-200 will get replaced bc I just bought it :rofl:

    no it won't...that lens has never lost value, and according to specs it's going to be lighter than the new version. Expect it to continue to maintain it's value just fine.

    That's good, isn't it? D300 prices may come down said, Mutombo
    Should we expect the same with D90?

    D90 better not come down. I just bought one and I'll be pissed!

    It's already cheaper than the 50d and equal in every way.

    :rofl::rofl: altogether too much obsessing over the absolutely precisely mathematically determined level of "need"...as if you need any dslr at all....it's all want bro...all.

    Christ its a pos camera regardless of what model you're currently eyeing....just buy whatever you feel like.

    If the difference of a few coins is going to break you...better get out of dslrs altogether.
