Has Your D200 been repaired??
I need to send in my D200 to have the "Banding" issue repaired but I need my camera for a trip in two weeks.
How long did Nikon service have your camera? Was the problem fixed when it was returned?

Mine was gone for a total of exactly 13 days including shipping both ways. My problem was type II banding that appeared in some fairly typical shots. It is now without any banding at all.
If your problem is banding, and it isn't severe or frequent, I'd probably wait until after the trip. If it really needs repair quick, I'd overnight it to them and contact them to let them know you need it back quickly.
They say all warranty work gets done within 7-10 _business_ days, and mine was, but you still have to figure in weekends and shipping time.
