I have always loved my D200-- I have owned this camera for about 6  years now and it still works like a champ! Definitely a durable camera, although I didn't abuse it either. Recently I've been finding it to just not quite be enough anymore. With all the new technology being released with every new camera mine just gets more and more out of date. A camera with 8 year old technology just can't compete with the low light capabilities of the newer cameras-- even 400 ISO has a lot of noise... I try not to raise my ISO over 250. To sum it up, it was a great camera in its' day but it is no longer a professional level camera. Time to move on.
