Nikon D200

After the D70 I bought me the D200 including the MB-D200 at March 21st 2006 (1749 Euro). It was introduced by Nikon in  November 2005 I had preordered the camera including the grip (189 Euro)because there was a lot of interest for this camera and an extra battery (79 Euro)

A big difference with the old D70; bigger displays, switch selectable metering mode, removed vari program selector and much more. For me was very important to have a flash connection on the camera because I use my studio flash a lot and I was missing this very much on the D70. From 6.1 Mp to 10.2 Mp is a big step in picture size. From 2 - 3 Mb for the D70 to 3 - 5 Mb for the D200 is storage.

Some test pictures are below, these are not processed in any way.
