Nikon D300s adds HD-Video and SDHC to the popular D300
Nikon has refreshed its popular D300, which was part of the dynamic duo with the D3 that punched Canon in the mouth and never looked back. The new D300s has a starting price of $1800, just like the D300 did, and it is expected to come out next month. You can now place a pre-order at Amazon for $1800. A kit with the new 18-200 DX VR II will also be available at a later time.

Nikon's own Podcast #23 talks about the new cameras. The link is to the website, not the mp3 file which you can download to your PMP or PC and listen later. The podcast wanders around before it starts talking about the D300s around the 7min:20second mark.
