Re: Why is D200 that much noiser than D80?

My feeling is that the d200 is optimized for raw, since you can tweek better in raw, the results are superieur to those of the d80. Since the d80 is set as a consumer camera, the jpeg engine is better optimized then the jpeg engine in the d220. Since both camera's are marketed at a different marked, i would think this is not such a problem. Most serious photographers shoot in raw anyway.

The sensors in the d80 and the d200 are not the same, the d200 has a 4 way sensor(twice as much as the d80) and is faster, hence 5 pictures a second vs 3 a second for the d80. The d200 is faster in any way, shutter lagg and blackout, better suited for action photography or reporter!

In raw, i would say there is a difference in favour of the d200.
