Haha, remember the hysteria with the D200? What a fiasco. Everyone was going nuts, and I just preordered and got mine shipped on launch day. Meanwhile the crybabies were in an uproar. Same went for the D300 - I easily got mine on launch day while all the lazy people cried.
"Nikon is screwing us!"
"This is a marketing trick by Nikon to keep us hungry!"
"They are intentionally withholding shipments!"
"I'm going to sue B&H for not having them in stock!"
