The d300 was released at $1800 in the US in 2007. The value of the dollar was stronger at the time so is released today is would be $2200-2300. If it is a serious replacement for the D300, featuring speed and pro AF system, meaning the upgraded MulltiCAM3500 with the 91k metering sensor, -2ev AF sensitivity, f/8 AF focusing and was fast, in the 8-10 fps second range IQ could be compromised a little to allow for that sort of speed in maybe a 16 or 18mpx sensor and find lots of buyers who really need speed, reach and pro AF. 24mpx seems to be the new norm for Nikon and the Expeed III is flexible enough to stuff into the full range of cameras from D3200 up, so the question to be answer is whether they can mode that much data in the price range, for 8-10 fps with lots of headroom for long bursts without overrunning the buffer. The technology is here now, but not in that price range or anywhere near it.
I am not in the market for one because I do not need speed, the D7000 and D800 are enough of everything I want and still fit into my bag. But if speed and top AF with reach was important to my shooting, I would surely figure out how to come up with $2200-2600. It is all based on priorities, speed is way below eating and partying for me so money would not be diverted for one from those higher priorities. The result of such a camera would be that it would own the market for a pro level speed DX camera. Canon might try to compete but they are the only ones who would or could.
There is a market for one, but a lot of current D300s shooter will complain loudly about an outragious price since the web rumor hopes for $1500-1700. Those who set speed as a priority will have no other choice and will sell in reasonable numbers in the mid $2000s. For sports shooters, such a camera in a D2x style body for $3500-4000 would not be ridiculous. In fact I might take a serious look if it had a true pro body with integral grip.
