Re: Looking for a reliable replacement for a D200, asking for opinions...

I own a D40, D5000 and D700 (sold a D90 a couple of years ago to fund some lenses), and I have just acquired an almost unused D200 with battery pack and EH-6 AC adapter.

The D40 & D200 use CCD sensors whereas the D5000, D90 and D700 use CMOS.

In good light, you cannot beat the D40/D200 and these are now my go-to cameras. In fact, I'm almost tempted to give my son the D5000 and sell the (low shutter count) D700 to get some decent FF lenses to use on the DX bodies.

My suggestion would be to borrow or rent a D300s and/or a D700 and compare the images against the D200 -- you may just get a surprise at how decent the D200 really is. I wish I had "discovered" the D200 when I bought the D40 three years ago.
