These aren't mine, but I'm hosting them since the original poster's site went down. Somebody over at FM got a chance to play with a D200 and took some pictures of it and more importantly WITH it. These were taken using a nice Nikon's 12-24 f/4 lens.

First, the 1600 ISO shot that you've been waiting to see. The original author will have more shots up tomorrow.

Info (bolded stuff should be noted)

programmed auto
1/60 @ F8

wb auto
front curtain flash (sb800 angled abit up)
srgb mode 1, saturation and sharpening auto

Blotchy due to (a) bad JPG compression (b) noise reduction(?), but it's fairly noiseless given the 1600 ISO setting. I do want to see a non-flash picture though.

Noise levels are pretty good. But again, it just appears that this was sent through NN even though I know it wasn't. It has that smooth but blotchy look to it. Nevertheless, I'm impressed given the circumstances.

This serves as a reminder about how large that screen is!

Looks rock solid doesn't it?

Blotchy (could easily be the poor JPG compression), but it's fairly noiseless compared to a certain D2X.

Noise reduction seems pretty good. There's a bit of noise, but nothing to write home about.

Rex... you are an instigator. Just as I was coming to grips with using the D70 for a couple more years, you had to show pictures.;)

I must be strong and get a couple of new lenses first...

... yeah right!

I would have prefered to see shots with a fast lens and no flash to judge noise.
Is there an extended ISO 3200?

One more thing, is it me or does the text on Nikon screens just drive you mad?
I always hated the different sized/non standard letters and numbers.
For god sakes, use the same type and size.

The camera looks sexy. :D

Using sensitivity boost you can get ISO 2000, 2500 and 3200. One of the nice things about the D200 (and the D70) is the 1/3 stop steps for ISO.

It's you.

Read the preview up on DP Review...

... all the good stuff is there.

They're coming, they're coming. :)

I actually like the look of Nikon menu system this time around. It's completely cosmetic, but anti-aliasing the fonts and bumping up their resolution makes a huge difference. Sorry if I'm tempting you to buy this. If I were in your shoes, I too would rather splurge on a lens rather than a body.

No, the menus are fine, I am talking about the top LCD sceen.
Instead of having the same size and type letters, like canon and other manufacturers, they have a big '6' and an 'O' instead of '0' for '60'. same for 'F' and '8'.

George, I read the preview and am impressed.

Oh, I see what you mean. Still, I really like how the screen itself is large even if the choice of font sizes was perhaps not-so-smart. I wonder when companies start copying Samsung by placing full color LCD's on top of cameras...

Let's not forget, Rex doesn't actually have one. He's getting the photos wherever he can, and we appreciate it.

George, I think he's talking about the LCD on the top of the camera. We Nikon types have just gotten used to it. It is kind of wierd though. The one that really bothers me is the zero. Does it use that much extra electricity to make it full height, like the other numbers? I'm sure that's the reason. Do whatever you have to do with the fewest number of lit segments. Never mind - Juan answered for himself.:)

Just as an aside, why did the word lit go away. In books, you always see lighted, even where lit sounds, appears and works better.

It does look pretty massive. Despite the fact that it meters AI lenses, I guess Rhys won't be interested in anything this big. Just means one less person in my way :D

Cheers,
Eric

Are you pre-ordering or waiting for the reviews (or user reports) to come out?

If I end up going this way and I wait until December, I may not get my camera until much later than that. Or I can eat the sales tax and buy locally which I'm fairly sure I can do if I'm that desperate to get a copy.

The use of lighted annoys me too.

Don't worry, I wasn't trying to be ungrateful by asking for more pics, I was just desperate for more. :p
