You should be able to get a used D2H for around $400 (pics)

I currently have a D200 I recently upgraded to the D200 from a D70.  During my search which ended with the D200 (a 10MP camera), I saw lots of D2H cameras.  I passed on the Dh2 because it only delivered 4MP.

So, I pose this question.  Why is the D2H so expensive when it delivers 4MP images?

Hi!

For many years, the D2H was my heavy duty, well built, accurate/fast focusing DSLR, usually mounted with a 200-400VR.

The 4 MPs of the D2H might be among the best 4MPs ever pit into a DSLR. Some not only got good results from the D2H, but using programs like genuine fractels, could get decent enlargements as well:

I tried listing mine on Craigslist for $50, but no takersĀ
