Re: D200 Guy seeks input from D800 Owners...

It's not directly relevant to my question; but since you ask, I currently have around 15 FX Nikkors. Most are MF (long-time user), and 3 are AF. (I could have one more new one for the price difference between D600 and D800, which is a consideration.)

It can be very relevant

You will get more image resolution from every one of your old lenses with 36 MP than with 24 MP.

You will also get more resolution, mainly at wider apertures, with recent high quality optics.

If you shoot mainly f8-11 my advice with this extra information is D800.

Many problems turn out to be a lack of intimate knowledge of complex modern camera equipment.
