I'm sorry if this has been asked before, but I'm a new visitor to the D2x forum. I've had my D70 for around 14 months and I have loved it. From being mildly interested I have become a pasionate if not yet very skilled photographer. I have succumbed to lens lust and now have a 17-55DX and 70-200 VR. I've tried all kinds of new things and had an incredible time. For some time I have been waiting for the announcement of the D200. I would really like more pixels, better performance, a vertical grip etc. I had one on my last film camera and really liked it. In the last couple of months I have decided that I don't want to wait any more. Even if the latest rumours are true and the announcement is imminent it will be several months before it is launched in the UK, another 2-3 months before you can get your hands on one, and I never like to get an early example anyway. I have 95% decided to get a D2X. I am enticed by the spec and excited by the prospect of having a pro camera as I have enjoyed my pro glass so much. I am a mostly retired person with a very understanding wife and a summer freelance web design contract which will cover the cost. So I have started looking in forums here and elsewhere to see if there are any issues, and I am a little worried. I see reports of focus problems, including one guy from the UK on DP Review who claims to have gone through 8 new bodies without getting a satisfactory one. Is this normal or is it an example of DP Review paranoia? If I go ahead with the purchase will it bring me pain rather than joy? Do a significant number of D2Xs have problems? I don't mind if the D2X turns out to be a demanding camera which really stretches me and forces me to learn. That's what I've loved about the past year. I just don't want to end up with buyer's remorse. I'd really welcome your helpful and informed advice.
