New D200s/D300?

  2. D200s most likely - D300 will have to wait until the D3 series actually comes out, lol

    The first photo IS from the D200, but the second photo has a slightly different "nub" on the door release lever. This new design actually makes sense from an ergonomics standpoint.
  4. Aha, I see it now. I didn't catch the captions on your 2 photos right away.
  5. All the D200 delivered in the past few months and all the F5 have the new lever. Nothing to do with a D200s.
  6. Hi Phil
    just to smile, while reading your long lens list.... but are you a lens tradesman??? Have you still all THOSE lenses??? Or are they the ones you used in a whole photographic life??
  7. I can confirm my D200 has the "New Camera" lever. The model identification plate on the base has NKR-D200(B) in the middle.

    Mine was purchased 3/30/07 from B&H, and has the lower style lever. If you read the entire thread on DPR, the original poster has pretty well been boiled in oil.
  9. Hi, Dino. That's my current list. :biggrin:

    not to say that Phil doesnt have a very nice list, but have you checked out Connie (clix pix) or Andy's (AndyE) lists!?

    I always went for quantity over quality, myself, until recently. Who else has a 400mm f/6.3 Lentar pre-set?

    The second photo is the same as my D200 I picked up yesterday. :) 
  13. Now the question is, did any other changes get made in the "B" model? Like maybe the noise performance of the D40X?

    The LCD cover clearly says BM-6 = D200 cover. And as for DPR being a source of information.......

    That "nub" allows you to take birthday suit pictures with aplomb.:wink:

    I have never seen a D200 with the straight lever, but I see why Nikon tilted it.

    I'm still using my D70 and have been putting some money into good glass instead. With that said, I'm waiting for the D200 upgrade.
    Between photography and golf I'm afraid I'm broke.
