"RE: Getting tired of upgrading."

As long as you aren't shooting action in low light, doing really deep crops, or printing wall size, then the D200 really doesn't have too many limitations. I still have pictures on my walls that were shot with my old D50. I agree with some of the previous posters. Unless you determine that a specific subject requires a camera or lens that you don't have, why upgrade?

I started in digital with the D50 in 2005, when I shot mostly landscapes and travel photography. In 2010, I upgraded to the D90 because the D50 didn't give me a fast enough frame rate to get enough keeper shots of youth football and baseball. In 2011, I upgraded to the D7000, because the D90 wasn't good enough under indoor gymnasium light to shoot basketball. I may upgrade again to the D7100 this fall, because it's AF system allows faster, more accurate lock-on for sports, especially indoors.

All of that said, if I still shot only landscapes and travel, I'd probably still be using only my D50.
