Looking for a reliable replacement for a D200, asking for opinions...
Feb 4, 2013

This D200 was purchased new around 2006. It's used mostly for reference images in street rod and other automotive paintings and illustrations.

It's been a good camera but it's getting a bit long in the tooth now. High ISO images are pretty noisy.

What is needed is something equally as reliable with a bit more ISO range, a larger LCD, and more resolution in megapixels.

I'd like opinions on what you might consider a good successor to this camera that is also reliable and relatively inexpensive.

It does not need to be a current model but I would like to be able to find a new or factory refurbished unit, if possible. It does not need to be an FX body.

Parameters in order of priority are:

1. High reliability

2. Relatively low sensor dust problems

3. Priced under US$2000

4. At least 12 megapixels in resolution

5. Larger rear LCD.

Thank you in advance for any practical experience or recommendations you might have.
