In the the past I've avoided buying used cameras. But I'm coming to the conclusion that this might be an error. My recent experience buying a used D700 has definitely changed my view about second-hand cameras.

If I had a D200 that wasn't working well, or otherwise doesn't get the job done, and had a few good DX lenses, I would seriously consider a gently used D300s. These things are built to last and I expect to be shooting with mine for a long time to come.

Having reviewed the lenses you have listed in your equipment profile (all of them FX?) , I would run, not walk, to buy a D700. I am quite happy with the one I recently purchased and it would be a definite step forward from your D200, for a relatively small investment.

On a side note, I read some old posts on Nikon Rumors in the days prior to the release of the D800, all of the FX shooters were lamenting the lack of information about the D700 successor.
