Here's my response:

+ 12.3 megapixel CMOS sensor, selfcleaning = WOW!
+ 3.0" 922,000 pixel LCD monitor = Wow!
+ ISO 200 - 3200 (6400 with boost) = finally better noise control!
+ New Multi-CAM3500DX Auto Focus sensor = 51-point!
+ Viewfinder 100% frame coverage = Brighter and better!
+ Weight: 825 g (1.82 lb) = Moving slightly in the right direction
+ Live view = Why the hell not?
+ Price tag = Looks like the best offer in the whole market

- Same battery = No evident solution to rather short battery life
- 'Active D-Lighting' = Silly popular feature from D40x
- Design = Whilst I can understand they not wating to dissapoint
D200 owners and build on this cameras excellent ergometics, I can't
help but feel a little dissapointet the D300 looks so
little 'new' ...

Conclusion: This IS the better camera for D200 enthusiasts. I miss a couple of improvements (particularly greater battery life), but the new highlights superseed even my highest expectations.
