The D300 is $450-500ish and it's a borderline pro camera...far, far from an entry level. The D7000 prices will be dropping with the announcement of the D7100. You can get them for $650-700 right now. The D7000 is a highend consumer grade camera. It's arguably as good or better in some regard than the D300. There's also the older D80 ($250ish), D90 ($500), and D200 ($300). All great cameras. Prices are approximate but general price ranges.
