Nikon D200

NikonD200
Review Date: Nov 8, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,599.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Build quality, 95% of functionality of D2X(s) for 1/3 price. Bright viewfinder. Multiple noise reduction. 5fps. ISO in the window, as well as metering in window and on top LCD.
Cons:
Noise. Just a little more noticable than the equiv Canon product

I recieved this as a gift on Sunday, and even though I haven't posted any photos yet, my initial opinion is that this is a very well made camera, and Nikon (who takes their time unveiling new products) really nailed this one. One look through the viewfinder and you can see how bright and vivid it is. It's lightning quick and hopefully I'll have more photos to post soon.

 
Nikon 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6D ED VR AF

Review Date: May 1, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Sharpness, range, build quality
Cons:
weight, size, sharpness @ 400mm, people wonder if you're paparazzi

Borrowing this lens, I can honestly say if I had the money, I'd get it. I never thought I'd get much use at 400mm, but once I put it on the D100, a whole new world was opened to me.

I shot this bald eagle at 400mm, and this is almost with NO crop:

this was also hand held, so that VR really works.
