nunatak, how's D1X's DR compared to D200's in high iso (e.g. 800,
1600) when comparing NEF alone (i.e. removing the NR from the
equation)?

My style of shooting avoids high ISO's, and gives favor to shooting
at a sensor's base sensitivity. That said there are always
exceptions. From my experience using the D1x, which seems to differ
from other contributors in this thread -- I've found noise levels
using ISO's greater than 400 so bad that they simply can't be removed
from the equation.

FWIW, I find ACR and LR to mitigate this noise much better than
Capture. However to answer your question, because of the noise I
would favor the D200.
