Many reports on the internet have reported that the Nikon D300s and D700 have been discontinued due to a law in Japan, however Nikon UK
has confirmed that the law does not affect the production and shipment of the products for sale outside of Japan. Here's Nikon's response to our question about the cameras:
"The D300S and D700 have been discontinued in Japan as they no longer comply with Japan’s revised Electrical Appliance and Material Safety law (enacted on November 20, 2008 and revised in November of 2011). This law does not affect the production and shipment of the products for sale outside of Japan."
