Some of you may be wondering about my Nikon D200 comparative review—the good news is that the D200 is functioning just fine, and that I now have quite a bit of experience with it. The bad news is that Nikon has had my D2X since Jan 31, or six weeks, so I haven’t been able to make any comparisons with the D200 since then. If that’s the kind of service you can expect on a $5000 Nikon pro body, it’s no wonder so many pros have reportedly switched to Canon [that’s my impression at least—facts might prove otherwise]. Enough time has elapsed that I’m reconsidering whether to complete the review at all due to the shelf life of such reviews, it being already four (4) months since the release of the D200. For those readers who have patiently waited for the review, I’ll summarize by saying two things: (1) the D200 is very much a mini D2X with comparable image quality (though a pinch less resolution), and (2) I prefer the D2X unless size and weight are issues. Worth noting is that the new-fangled wide-angle-view screens on the D200, Canon EOS 5D and other cameras are inferior to the white-LED-backlit D2X LCD—still the best LCD I’ve seen.
