Guys I got to play with a D200 today that Nikon made available to a dealer for a few hours. Man oh man if I was Canon I would be very worried about now. Forget the specs that you have read and wait till you get this baby in your paws. There are menu items (can’t even recall half of them) with features and modes that aren’t even listed in the product brochure…

For me the fact that you can turn on a grid in the viewfinder like the D70 was a nice surprise as I haven’t seen this mentioned anywhere.

Also I notice that once in raw mode you have the option of normal, fine and large as well as compressed or uncompressed. Shooting uncompress RAW L in continuous mode let us shoot 30 frames at 5 frames per second before the buffer got full.

The autofocus speed is astoundingly fast and the cameras focuses very accurately (far more so than the D70).

The LCD resolution is awesome and the image sharpness is astounding.

Hoping to get to play a bit more on Friday and if I do I will update this post.
