Is D200 special, or is it all CCD cameras?
Jan 30, 2014

The last year or so many people on this forum have been raving about the D200 with its nice colors and such... I am wondering if it is the D200 which is special here, or is it just the 10MP CCD sensor?

The reason I am asking is that I am looking for a light second body for hikes and when I want to shoot two lenses without changes.  I am considering the D40x for this; the thought being that it is different enough from my D7000 to have some different advantages (size and weight obviously, and possibly colors at ISO 100 as well).

Has anyone compared the D200 and D40x?  How do they compare?

Thanks for any thoughts on the matter.
