Now have a D300 to go with my D5000.
 
Looky at what I have. A used D300 (with 6,8,487 shutter actuations) with battery grip and a SanDisk 16GB Extreme IV @ 45 MB/second
This camera has no scratches or sign of wear on it. The guy really took care of it. Has latest version 1.10 too.

I traded this guy off craigslist with my D5000 with 18-200mm VR lens. He wanted the video and tilting screen feature and the lens.

Now I need to save up for another 18-200mm lens, Nikkor, Sigma or Tamron.

I still have my other D5000, Sigma 50-500mm, Sigma 105mm f2.8 and SB800 flash, Carbon Tripod with Manfroto grip.

Next year, I'll be gunning for the D300s or maybe even the D700 to replace my other D5000

Congratulations!

I'm curious if you looked at the 18-270 tamron too.

Definitely! That is a great lens. I had one before I got the Nikkor 18-200 VR.
The only reason I chose the Nikkor over Tamron was I knew I would be selling or trading one of the D5000 and it would boost the value.
I plan to keep the D300 for awhile so it won't matter this time around.
