Default Holy killer deal Batman - Best Buy has brand new D200s for sale for $600

Insane. If I could in any way justify getting a backup camera I'd be all over this one.<ul><li><a href="http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=7633313&amp;st=d200&amp;type=pro duct&amp;id=1130987191339">http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=7633313&amp;st=d200&amp;type=pro duct&amp;id=1130987191339</a</li></ul>

Default That in combination with an $80 4 yr plan that covers accidental damage

with what will probably be a newer model replacement. *wow*

Not that I'm suggesting something...or anything...

Default wink wink nudge nudge Say no more, say no more

/Monty Python

I wonder if they're just clearing out stock or trying to raise capital for the business or if this is a sign that a Dx00 is coming out.

Default Higher FPS, larger buffer, dedicated hw buttons, more info in the viewfinder,

magnesium frame &amp; weather sealed case are IMO the main advantages as far as shooting and longevity/ability to handle abuse. Having said all that, from real world experience I say there's no real difference in the quality of photos they produce. The couple I most often go shooting with have a D200 and a D80 - I can't recognize which camera took which photo from the 8x10 prints around their house.<ul><li><a href="http://www.dustylens.com/d200_vs_d80.htm">http://www.dustylens.com/d200_vs_d80.htm</a</li></ul>

Default thanks...

my friend just picked up an open box D300 and his camera "seemed cool" but at the end of the day our pictures were not distinguishable.

Default Image quality likely similar but D200 handles more like a pro level camera

it's got more dedicated buttons in the correct places. I hate the PASM wheel that so-called amateur cameras have. I prefer the direct access to Quality, White Balance, ISO, and framerate.

The D200 on up to the D3x all have similiar function controls. There's a reason for that.

Default how much more for a good lens to make it complete?

My wife and I are looking at a camera and I found this. I just don't know what lens to get and don't know anything about it.
