    From BH that my items were in stock and are being shipped....

    D200 owner am I now......

    Pretty exicited and thanks to whoever posted the code. Put in an order right before they closed wanting to make sure that code was good....

    Got the camera, extra battery, release and 2 day air cheaper than the camera locally....since I've bought over 5K of lenses from them I just could not bring my self to spend a hundred and fifty more at the local store...

    Time to shut up and get ready to shoot and comfort my D70:biggrin:

  3. Hey Jeff -

    Good for you!

    As I posted in another thread, me too - LOL.

    I pushed the "buy" button at B&H at 8:33 p.m. local time this evening, soon after they began re-accepting orders . . .

    As Benjamen Franklin said, "either we all hang together or we will most certainly hang seperately"...

    So now you can start checking the shipping information for updates every 30 minutes. Or is that just me?

  11. The great Italian poet Dante Alighieri had something to say about this:

    "Abandon all hope ye who enter here."

    You are "here" dude.

    Oh, it starts innocently enough. A new D200, maybe with a kit lens. You unpack the box with trembling hands and race out in a photographic frenzy. You share images with friends. They nod with a smile, "Nice shot." And then the voices start.

    First it is a small quiet (but persistent) voice. Did I get the right camera? The right lens? Why aren't my pictures as cool as that other guy on Nikon Cafe?

    Then louder voices start. I never get enough shots before recharging the battery. I need a couple of spares. And those 2GB CF cards are just too small. Time for some 4 (or 8) GB cards. And, about those pictures, would they be sharper with a new hyper-zoom? (you know, the rumored one made with glass from 3 Mile Island).

    And so it begins. This is the "everything else" that they talk about in the commercials that claim, "For everything else, there's MasterCard."

    You are doomed. Relax and enjoy the ride. There is no escape. Resistance is futile.
