"Anyone here switching to D200?"


Regina, CA
          

I am just wondering, anyone from the D50 camp doing the switch? $1699usd seem like a good price, but for me, my D50 will have to stick around a bit longer, at least until I finish my collection of new lens~

I have to move up to the d200. I find the D50 to be fabulous but the sensitivity of the camera can't keep up to the wildlife (moving fast) that I am trying to photograph. Flying ducks, for instance, I am able to keep them in the frame as they fly by but my camera is having a hard time locking in on the moving subject (contin. mode). I end up getting a shutter that won't release when I want and lots of shots out of focus. The increased number of sensors (7/11) on the D200 should help. I am also in need of a DOF preview for the macro work. Also, the increase in the number of frames per sec. sounds good.

I'm sure I have left out some other features that the D200 has which I would like to have (mirror lockup), but I will allow others to contribute.

thx ... Bill

If a bear ... never mind, just take his picture!

I love the D50 but I lust after the D200. My bank book, however, will have to be satisfied with the new 18-200mm VR lens first. I am hoping that the performance of this new lens will allow me to sell my 18-70mm and 55-200mm lenses to lighten up the camera bag...

Just finish reading Phil Ashley review on the D200. He compare the D200 to 5D, what a great value D200 is!!!! 2149CAD vs 4299CAD... FF is going down baby!!

And the new kit lens for D200, it said "VR II system offers the equivalent of using a shutter speed 4 stops faster"

Isn't the old VR 3 stop faster only, I can see nikon with more lens to come, oh yeah!!!

Same here... the D50 is plenty for my needs, i dont really see any sense in spending an extra 1000$

I would certainly love to upgrade to a D200 but I can't justify spending more money replacing a camera I bought in July, especially when my photography generates zero income. I'll save my money for a new lens (maybe the new 18-200) and a SB-800 speedlight.

I've played around with the D50 and it feels very much like my old N80 solid. I also heard the picture quality out of the camera is outstanding. I think the viewfinder is great for the price. That all said I planned on a D50 in two weeks and darn if the D200 doesn't come out and cause that lust. But even its great price is more than what I want or can afford. I am glad to hear the D50 guys staying. I felt it was a better deal for the money than the D70s since for me it would be a snap shot camera since I put alot of chromes and B&W through my FM3a and EM. Any thoughts on the D50 guys.

I'd love a D200 of course. But having just ponied up for the D50 and still enjoying the D50, I don't plan on any new bodies for a while.

But I am definitely gonna pick up the 18-200 lens when it comes out.

I'll try and get good with the D50 first, and then consider moving up;.....Digital cameras are like computers anyhow, you are never on top of the technology....If I wait, there will be something better out by the time I want to move up!
