    Would you believe this camera only had 91 clicks on it?!? I feel like I robbed somebody, I only paid $650 for it!!
    The D80 and D200 produce the exact same images.

    You got a great deal though.

    not really VR. the metering system is completely different. the only thing they produce that is the "same" is the maximum resolution.

    That's what I thought too before I got a D200, in fact that's why I bought a D80 instead of a D200 when I upgraded from the D50. I didn't have an opportunity to actually try them both back then, but everything I had read at the time said they produced the same exact images.

    The metering system to me is more accurate even when using matrix metering. From what I've shot so far since I got the D200 I am seeing that the images are sharper out-of-camera using the same lenses and typical settings I used on my D80. I used to have to do some sharpening in Lightroom to get the images "right" to my eyes with my D80, I even made the sharpening part of my image import defaults in Lightroom. I don't have to do that with the images from my D200.

    Thanks Fiasco.

    I just got attacked taking some more shots this arvo (lucky escape). Watching a wasp get angry at 1:1 magnification and then depart the field of view is disconcerting. Even more so when you're balancing on a chair holding $3,000 of gear with a pool 1 feet behind you.

    The nests have just met with a chemical spill.
    My kids are happy now. Sorry to any greenies.

    Ok, so what? Better metering always helps, but the cameras still both have the same ability to produce the same image quality.

    the fact is they do not produce the EXACT same images. image quality is affected by more than just the resolution of the sensor.

    Then I've been terribly misled by everyone who has compared them? I'm sorry I can't test cameras for a living...
