If you wife was THINKING about buying you a nice expensive gift, you'd let her, of course. She caught me looking at the D200/300. I joked saying to her look honey the D200 is ONLY $999 right now for the body . That's all I need, I already have lenses. She made a face but told me I could get it. I WAS JOKING WITH HER!!!! NO WAY am I going to tell her that!!!! Now would you hold out and try to get the rest of the money out of her for the D300 ( even though I'll never need it), OR just be happy keep your mouth shut and get the D200?
