I agree as well. Actually I've been growing more and more pessimistic about a D300s replacement, and if the D600 had come in at $1500-$1800 I would have taken that to be the final nail in the coffin. At $2100, that leaves the D300s as the only current Nikon DSLR between $1000-$2000 and there's no way Nikon would let the aging but excellent D300s fade into the sunset with that massive of a price gap.

There is easily room for a D7200 and D400 in that gap.

I'm generally not with you on that, since for me the main attraction for DX is subjects where I'm focal-length limited i.e. Birds. That means, I want a D400 with a lightning-fast frame rate and lightning-fast AF. I just don't believe contrast-detect AF is anywhere near up to the challenge (yet).

Actually, if the AF and frame rate was up to it, I'd take it in a CX sensor, but it seems we're not there yet.
