As much as I'd love to buy a D300 or D300s to accompany my D700 as a 2nd camera/backup the best I can do is find a $1329 refurbished D300 from Cameta on that auction site and even more for the D300s. I was browsing Adorama tonight and found a refurbished D200 for $799 which includes a Nikon 90 day warranty. Would the D200 without grip make a good general purpose backup to my D700? I still have one remaining DX lens, the 18-200VR plus all my FX lenses. I'm looking for a backup but also a little more reach when using my Signa HSM 300f2.8 EX DG or 70-200. I'm currently using a D2H and D1x for DX bodies but when going out with 2 bodies it makes for a very heavy bag! Bottom line, looking for a smaller 2nd camera and would prefer a prosumer body and not pay big $$$ unless the D200 isn't a good choice.
