I got a D200. Had few nikon camereas for during past few years, have used D100, D300, D70, D50, D40, D40x and D80 during last two-three years (all bought 2nd hand) just to get a feel for digital photography. Finally ended up with D200 (Yes downgraded from D300 since I was satisfied with d200 (of course d300 was better, but for me it seems D200 more than good enough to begin with or ended up with)). So have been using D200 for about six months now. I have not really mastered it fully. I am thinking of keeping it for some while till I get this right. I feel like each time I upgrade more time is wasted on mastering the camera than improving the techniques of photography. So I have decided to use it even if its limitations such as higher iso noise and low battery life. However I am not sure this is the right decision. What do you guys/gals think? what about focusing and other stuff that I am going to miss.
