Yup, I was thinking wedding, magazine photojournalism (especially sports), stock, editorial, etc.

For what you do at ISO 100 on a tripod, the D2x/D200 is fine.

For what I do right now (newspaper photojournalism) the D1-series and D200 are fine, except for certain low-light stuff like night football (where I must use a flash).
