Hi all, I had been lusting for a 12-24 for some time, but could not decide between the Nikkor and the Tokina. Also, had a slight crush on a D200 (owned a D80). Yesterday afternoon, I saw a post on my local Craig's list where a Nikkor 12-24 and a D200 (with MB-D200 & 4 batteries) were advertized for $600 and $1100, respectively. Needless to say, I called the guy right away and met him. The items were in excellent condition and he gave me a $200 discount for buying both! What a great lens and body. I love the wide angle and the solid feel of the D200. Below is a shot I took last night with the combo.
