thank you all for your replies,
My gear is not highly valued one but covers most of my needs (sigma 18-200 OS,10-20mm, nikor 18-70mm, 50 mm 1.8, 70-300mm etc... and SB600, tripod). I have two dynamic kids whose moments I try to capture mostly. So I needed a robust, easy to use, low cost (even if I loose or dropp it not much harm is done then) gear that make sure I can carry mostly everywhere with the kids, even in sub zero or wet weather.
One thing I noticed was each camera I used in the past somehow sucks at the beginning, either too dark, too bright or too slow. But each time I found that it was not the camera which was bad, it was just me who did not use it properly. So I am beginning to think that most cameras basically make a good photo if I take the time and use it in a optimized way (of course with some decent glasses). I know there are exceptions which demands the best of the best. I do not generally find myself in such situations yet. But definitely thinking of updating for some better glasses when I get more time for this hobby.

I guess D200 has the one thing I need most; easy access to almost all the functions. I do not like menus in the field. I wished it had a inbuilt remote sensor (like D80 did) though.
Going to keep D200 for a while at least...
Thanks again.
