Nikon D90 or Nikon D200?
Aug 21, 2010

Hi everybody!

I'm new to the forums, and I have a question to ask.
Should I purchase the Nikon D90 or the Nikon D200?

Now, to start off, my budget would suit both quite well, but more the D200 as it's about $100 cheaper. Now, I have 6 old Nikon top-notch MF lenses from the '70s, that would meter with the D200, but not the D90. This is why I'm considering the D200, but the D90 looks pretty good too.

I like the D90's image quality, but I don't think that the extra 2 mps will make a huge difference. The low ISO performance of the D90 is much better, and good ISO performance is always a good thing to have. The video doesn't matter to me, and I'd rarely use live view. Does the high res display really make a huge difference?

Now, I have 4 photos on my Flickr. I took them with either ISO 200 or 400. I blew them up to 40" on my TV screen, and they were noisy beyond belief.

Would the D90 out perform the current camera (Canon A460), and what about the D200?
