Like everyone else here I can't believe the spec of the D200 and plan to get one asap.

However, regarding the two things that bug me most about the D70, namely dynamic range and noise, I haven't come across any reviews or quantification of these. Currently, for high contrast shots, eg wedding groups, I have dial in -EV to avoid burning highlights, then drag the shadows up later using Levels in PS. That's where you see the noise, and pretty grim it can get too. In fact I have neighbours banging on the door shouting at me to turn it down.

So - does anyone know if the D200 will be better, either in DR or noise?

Thanks all,
