Some people think the D200 is outdated well you are right. Outdated does not mean a bad camera the D200 has meany functions that most new cameras don't have that I think they should. I thought the ISO would be very bad at ISO 1600 but surprisingly it is actually as good as my previous D3100 up to 3200 ISO. The 10.2 MP sensor works a dream when doing sports and portraiture I though it would be bad because low MP compared to a D7000. The main two things that stand-out that I like the most is ...

I bought this camera when it first came out and still have it 6 years later, although I had it converted to IR last year (2011). It's been a nice camera for landscape photography, but poor for low light and has bad battery life. In fact, it was the purchase of a GPS unit that led me to replace the D200 for normal use with a D300s -- I could only get 2-3 hours on a battery with the GPS connected because of the way the D200's GPS logic was implemented. It's a sturdy camera, but I wouldn't buy ...

A big step up for me from my D40. However I have kept at it and starting to see the results. I am enjoying the journey. I picked mine up on Ebay several months ago. Only 1600 actuations. The camera is like new. It feels so strong. The buttons soon become 2nd nature. These cams are cheap now so a great way to learn photography. Cheers Problems: No problems so far except initially the weight of it was an issue. I have got use to it now.

I had replace my Canon 40D for this one. At the time, the only issue is the image above ISO800. Canon is better with the CMOS sensor. Otherwise i just love Nikon's image quality. The 3D Color Matrix Metering is outsanding and it put Canon in the box. Problems: Nothing

A meaty and very capable camera for sure, but why: - does it not have a 1/500 flash sync, like the D50 and D40? - does it not outperform other 10mp DSLR's for resolution sharpness when shooting macros? (my test was Oly E-410 with 50mm OM Macro vs D200 with 55mm Micro-Nikkor). For the price it still commands, I would prefer something extra. It has all the features you could ever wish for, and the images do portray a nice depth to them. Fast operation and performance, easy to use...good in the ...

A serious tool capable of beautiful image quality. I upgraded to the D200 in january 2007 after using the D70 for almost 3 years. My main reasons for upgrading were the larger viewfinder and LCD as well as RGB histogram and mirror lock up. After using the D200 for over 3 years I am still very satisfied with it's image quality and features and have not been tempted by newer DX DSLRs like the D300 and D90. I know the newer 3 inch LCD screens are very sweet but the 2.5" LCD on the D200 is more ...
