OK I'm still waiting for my D200. Not that aren't available its just the tax man ripped out half my savings so I'm not there yet.

I keep hearing that the D200 will show up any flaws in poor quality glass. But I have no idea what this means to me, the average user. Will my 18-70DX, 70-210F4, and tamron 90mm macro give poor results on this camera? Or are they refering to lenses like a sigma 28-80 old standard kit lens? Would I only be happy with my results if i used 70-200VR and 17-55DX? If so then I'm better off with my D70 (but I LOVE that viewfinder).

Ah and just what does that mean? Big purple fringing? Soft images? Any clarification welcome.

I'm nearly done. Only one more shot. Just give me five minutes...
