Here is my dynamic range test of the D200.

It turns out the D200 has pretty much the same total dynamic range
as the D70, but has a very much lighter midtone and shadow curve -
making more use of shadow detail. The midtone on the D200 is almost
exactly mid-grey. This shows why the +0.3 EV custom curves often
used with the D100/D70 are not needed with the D200.

D200 - it does shoot lighter.

Daylight (sunlight), 50mm lens focus infinity WB Pre - Aperture
