Summary: Coming to the D200 after shooting a D100 is like going to a Porsche after driving a VW. So much faster in EVERYTHING. Focus is faster and much crisper in action situations. FPS at 6 is so fast, it really doesn't seem fair. Now I know why most photographers rate this camera as their favorite, because I know it's mine. I sold my D100 the minute this D200 arrived. And I'm never going back. Great camera...
Perfect choice for frugal amateur wanting dslr with advanced features.
8 May 2013
Summary: I am an amateur photographer who bought the d200 as an upgrade from a years-old d70. The price was right, first of all. In comparison with the d70, the d200 has a better sensor, a better viewfinder, larger lcd screen, better controls, and it takes ai/ai-s lenses. I love using it.
Summary: Absolutely enjoy the D200. Have used one prior to purchase and was ready to include in my collection of gear. Very pleased with the results I have gotten. Having trouble keeping away from wife who is learning on the fly. Being a Nikon person, I would rate this as a great Nikon piece to have in any collection for action/sports shots.
Summary: Great used value if bought at the right price. They are well-built and very capable cameras. They just don't swim very well. I like them so much that I bought one with a low shutter count after mine went overboard while kayaking.
Great value for this money, perfect choise, Proffesional level DSLR

Summary: perfect taked pictutes at 100-400 ISO, noise in photo on high ISO, i work only in 100 ISO, 400 with speedflash at night club, Perfect color. Drawing battery fast - too much energy consumpt screen.
Great camera that can use AI and AIs manual lenses.

Summary: I purchased this camera because I wanted a digital camera that I could use with my AI and AIs manual focus lenses. It handles all of them from 28mm to 300mm without a problem with excellent quality. You must use Manual focus and aperture preferred settings but if you input your focal length setting and Maximum aperture you get full display of settings. Numerous options for the professional photographer or skilled amateur.
Summary: This is the second Nikon D200 Camera body I own. I have a collection of specialty lens and add-ons. Having two ready one for close macro zoom and the other for the long distance telephoto shots saves a lot of time by not having to reconfigure and it means I'm ready for life as it happens!
Summary: This indeed is the best kept secret on buying a used Nikon digital SLRs... 10MP with 300 dpi and RAW shooting is not far from current state of the art new digital cameras - just minus the video features. Accepts and works with all past and present AF lenses - D series, G series and VR types. It can even meter and shoot with old Nikkor manual focus lenses that are AIS or AI'd. You can pick up those inexpensive sharp Nikkor MF lenses on eBay..
Semi Pro DSLR with largest CCD sensor & good to use with AiS Nikkor lenses.

Summary: Got this to replace my D80 & D90 for the reason to use old Nikkor AiS 50mm f1.2 lens. Besides that, this is the prefect Nikon body because of it uses CCD sensor and has motor drive and backup for all my canon bodies.
