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?

Thanks!
