I am thinking of pulling the trigger (or is it firing the shutter?) on a D2Xs. The wife says it's just for the "prestige" of owning the camera and I am slightly inclined to agree with her. I had the opportunity to play with one for a few minutes on the last ANPAT and it was instant love though I am not sure I can quantify it. The viewfinder is amazing, so big, bright and clear. It makes the D200 look like I am viewing through a straw and the extra info up the side is nice. I like the idea of the hopefully more accurate WB with the sensor up top.

The megapixels really mean nothing to me 12 vs 10 isn't that big an increase but I understand that the noise is better on the D2xs at the higher ISOs. I like the idea of the grip being part of the camera so I don't have to put it on/remove it though it will add to the weight/size.

I would be losing the pop-up flash and the intervalometer functions but I rarely use those anyway.

The D200 would become my backup when travelling.

So talk me out of it or talk me into it. NAS is really tugging at me on this one.
