I have just sold a few shots, so I think I can justify updating my D50
Origionally I was going to go for a D80, but then saw that the d200 was not much more expensive for a good nic second hand one, and it has a load of featires I would appreciate.

Now however, I'm really torn between getting either a d200, or a d2h, both of which are around £600 on a certain well known auction site, or waiting for a few months to see what happens to the price of the d2x..
I really like the vertical battery grip / shutter release, and I have been told that the optional grip for the d200 is a bit pap, which pushes me toward the d2h, as does the speed, however I do soemtimes find the built in flash useful, mainly to bring out foreground details, and especially if I am shooting a climber against sky.

Out of the d200 / d2h which would people reccomend?
I shoot mainly climbing shots, and also some rock and roll (I work at a large gig venue, and when I'm not mixing sound, I often get let inside the pit barrier to get some shots). I do sell some, but I am crrently a student, so photography is much more of a hobby than a bread winner.

Also how low is the price of the d2x / d2xs likely go get by the end of this year / early next year?.

Basically, if it was you £600, what would you do with it?

Cheers for any advice!
