Last Saturday, I took my D200 along with my 50 1.4 for a check-up. The 50 1.4 appeared (to my untrained eyes) to be kind of soft full open and since it is under warranty, I figured it would not hurt. I thought that I would take the opportunity and give the D200 a check and clean. Today, the APS technician calls me and informs me that they are not able to run a diagnostic on the D200 because the 10-pin port is not communicating. I use the Phottix wireless release and it works just fine, but it could be that Phottix does not use all the pins. So, what APS is telling me is plausible. Besides, I hear that APS reputation is very good and have no reason to doubt them. He told me that I could leave it alone if I feel that there are no other problems with the camera........ which I don't thik there are. In short, this could add about $70 to the regular maintainance and cleaning ($110) if they can fix the port or $170 if they need to change the entire camera board!! I like my camera (bought it used last November), almost more than the D300 loaner that I have been using, but I feel like I could have almost bought a new D300 at today's prices.:frown: What would you do? Would you repair the D200 or just leave it alone? To give you all the info, I am not planning a body upgrade any time soon. (I'll buy a used D3 when they go down to $1000!:smile Thanks!
