I played with a D200 with weekend for about 20 minutes are here are my impressions. First it is very solid (more like the F100 then the D100). The LCD screen dominates the back of the camera. I looks larger then the one on the D2x (although it’s the same size). The AF system is not as good as the D2x. I tried both the D200 and D2x with the new 18-200VR and a 17-55 and with both lens there were occasions when the D200 hunted and the D2x quickly locked on. I’d put the CAM1000 as a bit better then the CAM1300, but not as good as the CAM2000. The 18-200VR is smaller then I thought it would be. It is only a bit larger then the 24-85G. The build quality on the new lens is very similar to the 24-85G as well. I didn’t get great look at the image quality, but if it is decent, I’ll be replacing my 24-85G with the 18-200VR as my snapshot lens.
