I've just bought a D200 to go with my D700 and am looking forward to testing side by side (I have a very demanding low light situation that I hope the D200 will work in).

Why would you pick a D200 for low light work? O.o Of course it won't work -well- in low light. In reasonable light, when iso400 or lower can be used, it should work fine.

I'm sick of trying to argue if it's the CCD sensor, the bayer filter tuning or something further down the pipeline. No one has any way of knowing why certain cameras record colors in different ways in different light but they do. I happen to like the color rendering I get from my olympus E1 and this D200. Maybe it's a coincidence that both happen to have CCD sensors, doesn't really matter to me if I like the images they output at iso 400 and lower, especially shooting skin tones and red flowers. For me the D200 is like a 10MP E1

+1. I will echo what you just said, again. Nobody knows WHAT exactly makes the CCD output the way it is, and i don't care either. When i sold my D200 and purchased the D7000 the difference was CLEARLY there to me, regarding tanish skin tones detail, texture and color. I too buy cameras not for the reason to complicate my life even more, or to perform tests over and over and over. I just shoot for pleasure and i want a camera with great and quick output. Again, mainly skin tones for me.

I have no doubt that my former D7000 could "almost" match the D200 and my current Fuji S5 (if D7000 is used properly), but its output is still just NOT exact and easy to accomplish. And besides, i don't EVER recall getting a washed out output with my former D200 ether.

CCD kicks ass!
