Well, the wait is over, mostly....
The specs look pretty good, so all that remains now is a few of the more minor details, such as clarification on the AF system and motor, etc.
The major thing that's left is image quality. The wide ISO range seems to indicate that the sensor has noise under control better than any previous Nikon. I sincerely hope that to be true. It would surely be nice to have better performance at the higher ISOs than the d50.
So, bring on the image tests.

Mostly? For me, it has barely begun.
The D200 is the first Nikon dSLR which meets the price/performance criteria, at least on paper, which I set for myself when the D100 came out. But that waiting was an abstract thing. After all, you can't always get what you want, and film provided what I needed.
Now that the D200 is real, I want to walk into a store and plunk down a credit card today. But alas, it won't be available until late December.
In the meantime, I guess I'll have to play with some different toys.
