    $4541 with free shipping. That translates into 2855 euros and the D700 list price here is 2600 euros (without the grip).

    I might postpone my D700 purchase to early 2009 when I'll be in San Francisco and the Bay area for two weeks. Getting a new D3 cheaper than D700 + grip is tempting. On the other hand I could buy two D700's in California for the price of one here.

    One must love the camera prices. It is a shoppers heaven because the new models are driving down the prices of the old ones.
     
  4. The way the euro is going against the dollar you should wait until you come to US.

  5. I did just that - bought the D200 last week. Great upgrade from my D70, and I don't too much mind being a bit behind the times.

  6. The D200 is still a great camera.

    I find it a bit depressing how folks just "bin" stuff when something newer and shinier comes along, and the low-ball price is frankly nuts!

    I think it'll be seen as a Nikon classic, both in image quality and form factor.

    I wouldn't - the D300 is a significant upgrade.

    I still have and use quite often my D50 ! I love that camera. Even if / when I upgrade from my D200 I will still keep the d50 . .
     
  10. Frank et al,

    I had a love affair with my D200...found it to be a much better for my needs than my D80. However after lustfully migrating to the D300 I found its low noise level (if you are into low light situations_ to represent a major plus...though I guess not in the same league as the D3. I just added the grip - high quality - and an introduction of big body balance and ease of handling. But for walking around...60 painless seconds later and you are back to a compact body to work and a large LCD screen that is very friendly for my 69 year old peepers. Great problems to have....we are all blessed. My best, Gordon

    Does the D200 have an AF-on button that works the same as the D300? Up to what ISO do people feel you can shoot well at?

    Thanks.
     
  13. I think 1600 is perfectly usable with the D200, so long as you don't underexpose. AFAIK the AF-On button works the same on both cameras.

    People getting wound up about $1k for a new D200 makes me realize what a nice deal it was to get a new one for $900 last December.

    I was thrown back by the price drop too. I was in the camers store last week and saw they were selling brand new D200 kit for $1,200.
     

  15. Same AF button as the d300. I'm comfortable at sensitivities up to iso800. Here's a sample.

    Are you in Helsinki by any chance? I'll be flying from there from NY on the 18th if you need a carrier :)

    Please don't tempt me :eek: :biggrin:

    I live about two hours away and will be going to Helsinki this weekend. I just *might* make a visit to the Nikon pro dealer to either/or have a peek at D700 or at least grab a printed brochure to keep me drooling for the next 3-4 months. :Love:

    Have a pleasant flight!

    Love the photo. I was just out in San Jose. Good weather. Did not realize you were there.

    Thanks for the information.

    Wow that's tempting! I'd rather get a 70-200VR for a little bit more money though. :biggrin:
