I originally bought a D90, but didn't really like it, so I sold it after a half a year and then bought a D200 a few months later. I never regretted the choice, except for the fact that I ended up spending just as much on the D200/grip as I did on the D90 ($800), so there wasn't a cost savings. The D300 was never under consideration, because I knew its sensor was going to be obsolete in terms of high ISO after a short while. For a sensor with one stop better ISO than the D200, the D300 was too expensive to justify. The D200 has been a great camera for the past few years, except for high ISOs, the very highest of which which it lacks, or at which it is noisy above a certain level.

For PJ, I most often shoot in jpeg fine/medium on the D200.
