Great camera's, but preferred the D300 than D200. NIKON camera's are the best so far. Keep the good work up. Well Done.

I own both the Nikon D200 and the D300 and I find that there is a certain look to the colour from the D200 which I find more pleasing than almost any DSLR that I've tried and I have tried out all of the high end Canon and Nikon cameras including the Canon 5D mark II (a great camera).
