The Nikon D200.
Well today I made my first digital SLR purchase. A Nikon D200.
After many months of research and with the price of the D200 dropping, it was the logical choice.
I moved from Canon to the Nikon system back in the 1990’s and a Nikon was my first choice. The feel of a camera is very important and I find that Nikon bodies always feel better in my hand then other makes. As an existing Nikon film user with an extensive investment in Nikor glass, it made sense to choose a Nikon that would work with my old lens and the D200 would do that.
For a good review of the camera see DPReview site for more information.
It feels good in the hand, very well built and has the combination of features that I need in an SLR. I intend putting it through its paces over the next few months with a studio shoot also planned.
