Between 27th August and 31st October, Nikon will give £200 cashback if a D300s is bought at the same time as a lens more then £400.
For example a D300s with 16-85mm lens would cost around £1.3k
The D300s is still leading edge with the best camera focusing system currently on the market, best APS-C build quality and arguably the best handling APS-C DSLR.
The D300s also now represents the only APS-C Nikon camera with a magnesium body and its series will remain the entry point for a magnesium alloy body. With Canon now moving the 60D to a plastic body, we can see that the cost bar for these "Jewellery" type bodies is being raised.
Along with Nikon's great new lens releases this represents a brilliant platform to base your serious photography on.
