A great value for a very flexible, powerful DSLR with good resolution.

Summary: This is my third D200 body. While it isn't a D800, it also is pretty cheap, has good resolution, abundant features, and is an excellent way to step up from point and shoot cameras to a good DSLR. At 10.2 MP it has more than enough resolution for day to day photography.
Summary: The Nikon D200 is an older camera body, but is more than capable when used under the right conditions. I find it to be a great camera for flash photography, due to the native low ISO being 100. Don't buy this camera if you are looking for a low light performer, usable files top out at ISO800.
It's a great, fast overall camera that performs well during the day!

Summary: When I first began photography I started with a Nikon D3100. It was great after awhile but then I wanted a camera that could focus much faster and had a better overall build quality. The Nikon D200 was a great choice.
A lot of features for the money..and i prefer Nikon as the pick of camera

Summary: Having owned a D50 prior to the D200 i noticed a substantial increase in the quality of picture with some obvious upgrade in features as well.did not realise that it was a lot bigger than the D50 so have to get a larger bag for it.Apart from learning the newer features..
It lives up to Nikon's well known reputation for quality.

Summary: I bought this D200 so that I could use my stock of Nikon 35mm camera lenses. Excellent choice. It is a complex camera but the time spent downloading the user manual and digesting the means of using Non-CPU lenses was well worth the trouble.
Summary: It's a very good model to start out with because it's a cheaper, but older professional model. It has good enough colors. It has good enough features. The 1/8000 max shutterspeed is wonderful, the focus motor is awesome. This lens a great start for anyone.
Summary: The D200 is a technical workhorse. You have a lab literally in your hands to customize your pictures, even before you upload them into your PC. I like the heft of it in my hand, which reminds me of my old N4004.
Pros: Bright LCD, Comfortable Controls, Strong Construction
Summary: Am loving the convenience of being able to change white balance, ISO setting, and image quality at the click of a button! Love all of the other bells and whistles as well. Have only one complaint--the design of the port for the shutter release cable.
Pros: Bright LCD, Comfortable Controls, Quiet, Small Lag Time, Strong Construction
