Last Saturday morning I went to my friend (Lee) house to see my new toy, its a Nikon D200 (second hand unit) but in tip top condition. I was shocked when Lee took it out from the box with the plastic bag still intact and all the accessories USB cable, charger, body strap, battery, video cable, CD and manual have not been open before.
According to Lee the previous owner was a Nikon camera collector where he likes to collect all Nikon DSLR cameras and accessories. He got him self a home studio with back drop as well. All the collection was in superb condition where it kept all under cabinet plus all the cameras was not even ever leave its house, solely used at home. I’m very admire this uncle as so much in love with Nikon, for sure is a Nikonian.
Previously I got myself an E-300 where I really like the feel of DSLR then my friend call me up and said there is another unit that is much more better than my E-300 with better offer as well. So I just upgrade my E-300 unit to this D200. Olympus accessories is kinda hard to find some more is much expensive but 1 thing good about Olympus is the lens are almost compatible with all range of DSLR. For Nikon some mid range DSLR does not able to use full range of lenses thus you have to upgrade your body to get the bigger lens.
Photography is an expensive hobby where the price of the DSLR body is not really that expensive but the lenses are the one killing. There is a reason for the price you gave where you can get perfecto picture that you admire most. That’s where i get hooked and my good friend keep on poisoning me 🙂 btw thanks dude for the poison else I won’t get this baby.
Forgot to mention that I’m a beginner and I think a bit LCLY to carrying D200 around :). Who cares as long as I take good picture right. I really appreciate Lee for borrowing me the lens as I just bought the body unit only and now searching for lens.
Below is a good review of this Nikon D200 and if you’re interested to know more about this unit (sorry that this is an obsolete model).
