Well, I'll try to make this quick for you all.. . I am currently shooting with a D80 and have been debating for the past month or so about upgrading to the D200. Main reasons I wish to do this is the dedicated buttons... I'm sick of having to hit the "Play" button to turn off the LCD before I can hit the ISO, White balance, etc. buttons without locking the pic on the LCD kinda thing. Sometimes I need to switch quickly to get what I need. Hope some of you know what I mean. I do forsee perhaps needing the 5 frames per second shooting for doing sports and action photography, being that summer is coming up , but at this exact moment, its not a total neccessity. Worth it? Or are my reasons too superficial? .
