There are some important reasons why a delay would be a good thing for me. #4: It will give me a chance to look over the new dslr that Canon will announce to upstage the d200. Then I'll disregard it and buy Nikon anyway. #3: I'm an adult. I'm supposed to be playing Santa Claus this time of the year, not acting like a greedy kid throwing a tantrum because I can't have a new toy just when I want it. #2: If the d200 is delayed, I might be able to pay off my new 85/1.4 before Adorama hits my credit card again. #1: I need some time to get over my Holiday Hangover :-/.
