haha I made the mistake of saying the same thing on another forum recently, and a guy posted up OOC jpegs done with High Contrast, and they looked..well..not flat!:wink: So even though I haven't tried myself, it is possible to get OOC jpegs that look pretty darn sweet.Also, it seemed images were a little flat straight out of camera. NX really brought a lot of snap and detail out of the NEF's though. Enjoy!
The d200 has been superceded by the d300, but it's far from obsolete. It will work particularly well with your 70-300VR. Here's a few samples.Well I was thinking the grip could be great but really I now have to stop spending money and learn how to use that gear the best.
