Back from Bryce and Zion with 800 pictures between us and you should see the difference between some of the shots taken by the 2 cameras. Mrs. B was using a D200 with her new 18-200 vr in P with 1+ sharpening and jpeg fine. She focuses and fires away. And here I sit with my D2Xs in manual,adjusting,fiddling and shooting raw & jpeg fine. Using Nikon 17-55, 12-24 and 10.5 fisheye. Most of her shots are what I would qualify as super sharp and except for about 20 or 30 are spot on exposure. Just about the opposite for me regarding exposure. I was bracketing so you can expect half of the shots are over or under exposure. Don't get me wrong I did get some really good ones but it was not easy. The light I'm sure had alot to do with my having most shots over exposed by 2 stops or more. The D2Xs seemed to really fight those conditions where the D200 just ate that up. Extremely bright middle of the day with the sun glaring off the rocks. I'm now going through the library of shots just trying to look at the numbers and see if I can learn a little more for the next time. Anyway we had a ball and a couple hours with CS2 and the exposures are easy to adjust.
