This guy has tried the D200 a mere 5 minutes. I have translated a few sentences: http://www.akam.dk/artikkel/20660

"...så er søgeren ganske stor. Den var større end i både D2X og EOS 20D, men ikke revolutionerende meget større"
==> "... the viewfinder is quite big. Bigger than both D2X and EOS 20D but not significantly bigger."

"...Kameraet har en del specifikationer, som gør, at vi tror, det vil blive en hård konkurrent til D2X. Sidstnævnte har bedre autofokus-system, bedre hvidbalancemåling..."
==> "... we believe that the camera's functionality will make it a tough competitor to D2X. The latter has better AF and WB systems..."

and a new thing to me:
"Kameraet er udstyret med en funktion, som gør, at det ikke vil acceptere tredjepartsbatterier."
==> "The camera is equipped with a function which makes it impossible to use third party batteries" (AA apart obviously).

He also quotes Nikon of saying that the new batteries will work in D70 but the old ones will not work in the D200. It must be said that the reviewer had only very short time to use the camera and was not allowed to use his own CF Cards but he was very positively surprised.
