I am close to ording the D200 (Not waiting for the next upgrade) for the single reason that my trusty D70 works for everything but birds in flight.


Anyone have the D200 and use the 300 alone or with the TC1.4? Is it significantly faster than the D70 for this purpose?

Jeff, can not help you on the 300 information, but I know you will like the D200. I really enjoy mine.

Good luck,

George.

Yeah I also agree.

The D200 is a hell of a body and going from a D70 to a D200 is going to be a worthy expericence and something you will remember for the rest of your "D200 career" :biggrin:

But if you do get the D200 with the 300mm please share us some of your shots and whatnot here :biggrin:

Its sure is fun to have a new body and a new lens to play with :rolleyes:

My only comment is it is the next lens I'm going to get. (in a few months, the new 70-200 is not comming off my D200 any time soon) sorry for the drift.

After seeing pictures taken with it in the animal section of this site (shot with the 300F4), it looks like a Stellar lens. Crisp, fast, and well worth the money. With or with out the 1.4 TC. As for the D70 Vs D200, my D200 does seem to focus with all my lenses a bit faster. I am having much more luck with birds and faster critters (and Kids). It was a learning curve and I did miss my D70 for a few months. Now days, Im glad I upgraded. Hope it helps

Since I already have the 300 with tC1.4/1.7 you will see lots of posts in the animal forum:)
