  1. After thinking about it for weeks...night and day...finally I made up my mind and ordered it on Monday. Actually in my wishlist is the 300mm F4 and the 60mm macro but my inner self saying that maybe will come true in the near future after I get this dilemma over with.

    As of today at lunch time I received a call from the local camera store and I knew the moment I'v been waiting for is finally here.

    Brought my 70-200 VR and one of my batteries along. As soon as I hold the gold box at the store I knew I'v made a right choice. Slowly unpacking it...slot in the battery...and on goes the 70-200 VR...

    Adjusted some options and settings then there I go! OHHH BOYY!! The sound of the shutter clicking just made me madly fell in love with it!! The feel of it in my hand...ahhhh perfect!!!

    There I am smiling along wondering what can I do later with this baby :rolleyes: 

    Oh in case you guys and ladies are wondering what am I talking about here...its my D200! Yeah I finally own a D200 after shooting with my D80 since Nov 06. And now my D80 will be my backup body and I think the 17-55 will be a great couple with it and the 70-200 VR will be on the D200 for sure!

  2. You are going to love it, congratulations! Don't be shy to burst off some continuous RAW shots because the D200 can handle it. That was one of my main reasons for wanting to upgrade from the D70.
  3. Congrats. It's a great camera...

    Congradulations on your purchase! Nice effects on the pic also!
  12. So far the D200 is purrrrrrrrrrrrrrfect! The way it work with the 70-200 VR is just amazing! The autofocus is fast. And did I said fast? With the battery grip its just so nice to cuddle around in public :biggrin:

    A sample from my school football match :rolleyes:
