Where did you come up with this info? I pre-ordered my D300 and got it a few days after it was released. This won't be the type of camera that will just be sitting on the shelf, but if you do your due diligence, you should probably be able to get one by September. If you pre-order, probably by August. This is based on roughly what happened with the D300.
