    Today Nikon added the D200 in the "discontinued" list in their japanese headquarters website:

    http://www.nikon-image.com/jpn/products/discontinue/digital/index.htm

    I'm sure the camera will remain a while on national websites while supplies last, but the production most likely ceased a few weeks ago when the D700 production started.

    R.I.P. D200 and may thy replacement be at least as successful!


    P.S. Mine is not for sale. It produces a lot better images nowadays that what it could do when I first got it. Perhaps the camera has gotten better? :wink:

    Thats sad...

    I was looking at the D80 and people told me to get the D200 for a little more for 100% more camera.

    Still thinking about the D40 though.

    RIP, D200.

    From what I hear, the D700 is being made in Japan at the D3 plant, the D200 was made in Thailand. I'm sure it is more a matter of sales, the D200 sales are likely way down since the D300 hit the shelves.
     

  4. Funny about that, my D200 seems to take far better pictures than when I first got it. I think this proves the D200 is like a fine wine, better with age. :biggrin:

    With the number of D200's I've seen for sale with 10K or less images, we will being seeing photographs from it for a long time:) 

    I'm hoping mine lasts for at least 3 more years, love the camera. Don't see why not with my D70 is still clicking at 35K and 3.5 years.

    I only hope that nikon brings out a 24 meg./12m meg hs sp crop with built in VR....the D2000:)

    Douglas, in my experience, it is us who get better with age, the D200 is already there.:wink:
     
  7. Sweet! I now have another "rare antique" in my possession! :biggrin:

    Hmmm, maybe it's a Nikon thing as my little D50 takes much better photos now than it did when I got it in December, 2005. Maybe we just have to wait for the camera to mature :smile:

    The price between the D200 and D300 isn't that much anymore, so if I had the $$ I'd go for the D300 (it's in my dreams :)

    My D200 is a keeper.........even though I have the D300, the D200 has and is serving me fine. D200 + D300 = D500!!!!
     
  13. Or maybe it's the shooter, improving with age!!!

    Or, perhaps,a shooter who has aged and consumed aged wine and shooting with an aged camera!!:wink:
     
  14. muhahahaha *rubs hands together evilly*

    Maybe that will score me a great deal on a slightly used one finally!

    I assumed it was already dropped from production. This surprises me.

    So a week ago, camera dealers were still ordering D200's from their suppliers? I rather doubt that very much.

    R.I.P. D200... I have a feeling this camera will still remain very popular for years to come. I wish I could of hung on to mine, but I just had to let it go.

    My guess is that they will use their Thailand factory to produce the D90 now.

    I know a guy that just sold off his D200 that had over 240,000 clicks on it. He said it was still working like new when he sold it.

    if I had the $$, I'd buy a 2nd D200. To me, there is nothing more to want.
