    I'm surprised, the D300 has been keeping its value since last year. :eek3: Average prices dropped maybe $150.

    a lot of people (me included), are waiting for this price drop...

    which means there is still a large demand for the d300....


    so no. prices won't drop.

    I don't really think they will, at least not much. The new features are nice, but hardly enough to warrant an upgrade. I think most people that have a D300 are looking to upgrade to a D700, not another D300.

    Are you just asking because you're thinking about that package deal on FM? I almost pulled the trigger on it this morning :o

    Yes. Also, photos from the original D300 now suck, for the record. You'll need the D300s if you want anything good.

    doubtful, there are still people trying to get 1400 in the used market:rofl:

    and then there are people trying to get 1150

    people asking 1400 are IMO idiots as refurb units are selling for less than that through respectable stores, and they come with warranties. Warranties that you don't get when buying 2nd hand.

    admittedly though, I will eventually be in the market for a 2nd body. And I'm looking at picking up another 300.
