sweet! looks like it would make a nice pair with the d300. in fact, it is the d300 with a FX sensor, basically. should push the d300 holdouts/d3 fence-sitters into putting up or shutting up... best part is d200/300 prices will drop again, well that's not really good news if you were planning to sell yours for a d700. i predict used 17-55s will become plentiful as well as folks dump dx lenses.
