Second body required - what options ?
Jun 5, 2008

Hi all,

I'm looking for a second body to go along with my D200. I'm on a limited budget, but I'm looking for something as close to the same specs on pixels, etc. as possible.

My main criteria are that it needs to be able to drive my Nikon 70-200VR and my Tamron 17-50 (Relatively new one - http://www.warehouseexpress.com/product/default.aspx?sku=1013811 )

I believe that one or more of the newer consumer Nikon bodies would have trouble with the 17-50?

Other features that would be a big win would be battery and flash compatibility with the D200. I'm pretty sure I can use the SB800 with everything, but are there any consumer bodies that would let me use the same batteries so I don't have to buy spares ?

Thanks in advance!
