Re: D200 vs D5100

I am still using my D200, and love it, but lets face it! the D5100 has got to be a great improvement, I love the colors and yes its a better built camera than any of the lower end Nikons.

I'm in a unique position I have several Nikon bodys, from tha D700, down to my old D70s, each has a use for me, D2h sports and zoos D90 just out hiking with a 18 200, and D200 with 17 50 2.8 Tamron for streets and car shows, and the D700 for landscapes and so on and so on.

Now I'm not planning to replace my D200 soon, but I'm thinking in couple years the next upgrade of the 5100 and or D7k then maybe sell the d90 and D200 or put them back into the box and set on a shelf.

I find the D200 a wonderful tool! I considered selling the two I mentioned and get the D7000, but not yet.

I think the articulating LCD will become common on future models and I'd like that.

So all this wasted time and jibberish is just that the 5100 is better but the D200 still has a very "tuff" build, if thats a priority look for a used D300s no matter good luck I wish I could have even more Nikon bodys I like what they are doing, it will be great to see the next generation D300 and D700 bodys, but they don't interest meto replace my D700.
