I believe that at $1699 US ESP, the D200 will put a serious crimp in D70s sales.

The D50 is targeted at a different audience, and I think will not be particularly affected. But the D70/D70s has been attractive to those of us who have some knowledge of photography and wanted to move into a capable DSLR, but could not afford the pro versions from Nikon or Canon.

This seems to me to be an exact description of those who will want the D200.

It seems Nikon is in an interesting place. They have what by most accounts is a really nice entry-level DSLR in the D50. They now have a killer moderately-priced almost (? - perhaps more than 'almost') pro DSLR in the D200. What isn't clear to me is where the D70s now fits.

So my question: If the D200 had been an option when you bought your D70/D70s, would you have stretched a bit more and purchased the D200 instead? I can say for myself that the answer is definitely 'yes'.
