Why is D200 that much noiser than D80?

Chain oil

I use Castrol Chain Oil in a pressure can, silky smooth, no noise, do remember to shake the can for 30 seconds before applying to mirror hinges, a quick squirt on the shutter also helps.

Don't overdo it as that can cause a yellow cast and we don't want that !

Different mirror construction, the dampers in the d200 don't damp
down the noise at ISO 1600 nearly as well as in the d80. If you
got rid of the mirror, there'd be no noise.
