aw. man, that's what it is!

I thought the yellow cast was from having a sigma lens in my camera bag.

Sheesh. The things I learn here.

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.
