    I'm ready to purchase a better body than my D50 mainly because I need something faster than 2.5 - 3 FPS.

    When I first started researching new bodies I thought the only choice I should make is the D200, it gets rave reviews and is fairly affordable. I was ready to buy the D200 then a friend said to take a look at the D2h. So once I started looking at the D2h I realized that it will do everything I am looking for, plus it can do an amazing 8 FPS. Other than the D2h being only 4.1MP (which is fine for what I am shooting) are there any real benefits of going with a D200 over the D2h?

    stronger build... between the 2 I would stick with the 200 unless you HAVE to have the high speed.

    you mean stronger build on the d2h?

    if you really need speed the d2h is a speed monster, it focuses like lighting, it writes ultra fast and it shoots ridiculously fast..but of course you are limited to 4megapixels.

    I mainly shoot Motorsports, mostly Drag Racing, but also Formula 1 etc...

    I have been checking ebay quite a bit, I'm actually the high bidder on the auction you posted, but it says reserve not met. I had a deal worked out with a guy on a sub 6000 click D2h for 950, but Comcast bounced my fucking e-mail back and he sold it to someone else before I could send him the e-mail :wtc:

    The D2h is Nikon's sports camera. It's fast, and if that's what you're going for, by all means, get it. The D200 is more a jack of all trades. Pick whichever fits your budget.

    Also look at your lens choices, since 4MP is far more forgiving on cheap glass than 10MP.

    I have noticed you have nothing but praise to say about the D200 everytime it comes up.

    What is your end use for the image? Web/print/? and what size?

    The D2h is a nice camera for the money for sports.

    Mostly web. The 4.1 MP won't be an issue.

    In that case, get the D2h and spend the extra coin on a lens.

    Sounds like you should consider the d2h is you're shooting alot of sports. Also don't consider the 4MP to be an issue.


    how is the battery life on those?

    Ended up getting a D2H with the latest firmware and ~6000 clicks, 2 batteries, charger, a wifi adapter, USB Card reader, A/C adapter, remote shutter release, and a couple other things, can't wait till it gets here next week!
