Well, B&H came through and my new D200, 18-200 lens, SB800 arrived just like they said. I have already charged one battery and the 2nd is in the charger now. Took two shots of my wife, then the dog caught a couple. What an absolutely fantastic camera this seems to be. It is more hefty than I imagined but feels great to hold. I've already looked for banding and there is none, also checked the serial number and it appears to be recent(too much forum reading). It is a long way from my manual Pentax H1A, H3V, and Canon AE-1. Guess I won't be using the Gossen Lunapro with this one. I've always shot manual cameras and done lots of B&W darkroom work and some color slides back around 1970 starting in Turkey. My 1st disital was a Kodak DC210 followed by an Olympus C8080. To say it bluntly it's great to have a real camera again, my first Nikon and first DSLR. Man this is great and I've already gleamed a lot from this forum - thanks.
