Good summary of the considerations that different shooters face at the moment. This reflects some of my thinking as a D200 shooter who is now ready for an upgrade to better ISO performance and improved AF.

I can purchase the D7K or D300s for comparable cost, or pick up a used D300 for even less. Each is better than what I currently own - in areas that matter to my shooting - so I'm ready to purchase.

The deciding factor for me is a desire to own two bodies for photo trips, and that my wife is beginning to get more interested in learning photography - God bless her! With that in mind, I think I'll ditch the past and move forward with a D7K/D200 now and trade up to a D400/D7K future. (i.e. I'll just NAS my way through a tough decision )

The D7K is weather sealed, responsive, handles older lenses, will program to AF-On usage, and has Mirror-Up capability. It does not have a 10-pin connector for accessories, but I think that is a fair trade for the latest in sensor technology, 14-bit image pipeline and better video capabilities. I'll guess that the new battery will be the same as the D400 and that they will share menu/selector ergonomics as well.

I've had my D200 since Dec-05 and it has been a great purchase. If pressed to own a single camera, I'd probably trade for a used D300 now and wait for the D400 to arrive.

Thank you Nikon for such a great set of choices!
