    In Europe no sign in sight of the promised 23 november. I think Nikon is
    notorious about being late...

    Is it really anywhere in stock in America?

    Other thought: I live in Portugal, but my sister lives in Washington. She
    just send me some Nikon flashes in a package I had send to her from Amazon.
    They don´t ship to Europe.

    So she send it by First class (airmail, whatever it´s called) but nothing
    special. She marked it as GIFT and worth about $40.-
    No problem, got it in a week.
    But if I would order the D300, it´s a little bit big of a gamble. Is there a
    way to insure it, without putting the (true) value on the package?
    Just dreaming I think ;-))

    Yes. It arrived at the dealers on Wednesday, which was the 21st. Mine was
    shipped to me on Wednesday, but Thursday was a major holiday and my dealer
    said UPS was not delivering on Friday. So mine was sent to my office, and I
    will see it on Monday.

    They have started appearing on eBay. The first was listed by Cameta Camera
    on midday Wednesday with a 24 hour auction length. It sold for $2325.
    Prices have since been coming down. I paid $1800, which is the list and
    going price.

    I asked my dealer about the D200. His reply:

    According to my rep., they're going to keep it for a while (I think so
    they can keep the D300 price up there.)
    But, realistically, it will probably be gone by March.

    A shipment came into the Pacific NW at local photo store. Preorders were
    not even all filled. More coming but don't know when.
