New Nikon D300 will not function in RAWNEF without upgrading Nikon Capture NX 1.1 and 1.2 too...1.3. It is a large file and if you have Explorer in your PC, you must first make sure you have Explorer 2.0 upgrade framework updated in your system...otherwise you're in for a lot of grief...j...PS...Nikon is currently offering promo deals to 300,000 units sold by offering free upload and in recent models, a cd in body box.

Just to clarify, the D300 works just fine in RAW/NEF mode without Capture NX. Photoshop CS3 (with ACR v4.3), plus the latest update of Lightroom will both open D300 and D3 files with no problem.
Kudos to Nikon for including a FREE copy of the NX license with the body. Not only that, but owners of previous versions of NX can upgrade for free too. So anyone who owns NX and buys a body basically gets an extra license for free.
