Maybe you prefer the look of the CCD sensor in the older cameras rather than the newer CMOS.
Many do, it's the reason the D200 is still is much demand in the used market.

It could very well just be me, but I really didn't fall in love with this camera like past Nikon's I have owned from the D50, to the D200, etc. I realy didn't like overall output from this sensor: color, tone, exposure. The high ISO was fantastic, but overall IQ left me luke warm. This is the first Nikon body I have ever returned, maybe its me, maybe my tastes have changed or maybe Nikon changed their formula.
