I have been using a D200 for about 5 years and am hoping to upgrade to a new camera this year.(D7xxx, D400, or ?) The D200 uses Multi Cam 1000, while the D300s uses Multi Cam 3500, and D7000 uses Multi Cam 4800. Aside from moving from 11 focus points on the D200, to 51 points (D300s) or 39 points on the D7000 (and I assume much faster focusing,) what other differences will I see? Since 3 out of 4 of my lenses are older non AFS types, will I even notice much of an improvement, (especially with the 300 EDIF screw drive lens)
Thanks for your help.
