    I can try...even without it, do you think this is a good deal Viper?

    I'm kinda blinded by the bling of this camera right now...and can't make the right decision :(

    300+ off and its mint? Pretty good I guess, but I don't follow Nikon's resale value :o
     
  5. I'd get it especially having only 2000 clicks, that's basically a brand new body if the seller is not lying. Does nikon have anything like cancount that can work with the d200?
    If I didn't already have alot invested in canon gear i'd be all over that thing, if you decide not to get it pm me the sellers info. :x:

    nah, it fits in between the Canon 30D and 1D Mark II N. Nikon has the D2x for the 1D Mark II N

    Ohh I see.

    So it's like a 5d kinda
     

  9. I think it's more of a competition with the 5d than the 30d as far as quality. The d200 is very much superior to the 30d in my eyes, just as the 5d is very much superior to the d200. But if you base your opinion on the cameras bases solely on specs you will find that the d200 and 30d are pretty close to similar compared to the 5d for obvious reasons (full frame vs crop)

    i think the 5d and d200 are equal, both have their strong points.

    d200: 5fps vs 3fps of 5d
    5d: ff vs 1.6 crop factor of d200

    5d: landscapes
    d200: sports

    edit:

    get the d200

    um... how can it be compared to a 5d? its a 1.5x crop isnt it?

    the 5d is the 30d of the full frame world, how can you say that its closer to a 5d than a 30d? (sure, maybe a price comparison.. but come on)
