Well, I bought one when they were first released. I was migrating from 35mm so it was a no brainer for me. I'm extremely pleased with it. I haven't seen any problems with the banding that a lot of people are complaining about, but I have occasionally seen some "combing" on blown out high contrast areas. I have to zoom in 200% to really see them and from what I understand it can be a somewhat common occurrance with digital. Just one of the things to learn.

I'm not 100% sure of the D100 features, but obviously you're getting higher resolution and a bigger screen. The rest of the features are probably subjective and up to you to decide if its worth it to upgrade.

Obviously, I can (and will) post a shot from it, but it's probably somewhat meaningless given my lens choice yadda yadda yadda and I'm sure you've looked at 100% pics from several other photogs already.

This image is photoshopped, but I have left some of the original skin texture in tact. Pay attention to the fine hairs on her shoulder and around her lips. Also the thread count is easily visible on her dress and the chair.

Hope this helps

[/ QUOTE ]I got one the day after they were released. I had been using a D70 for about a year. It was a bit of challenge for me mostly because the D70 had a 'personality' to its color rendition. The D200 shoots just dead honest true. Now that Adobe has released Camera RAW, I feel like I have my control back. I have the battery grip and just ordered a RRS L-bracket. All in all it's an excellent body. I have two friends with D2x bodies and they believe the D200 is 90% there. Not bad for 1/3 the price. I'm comfortable enough to sell the D70 and think about a second D200.

Thanks! great shots! sinse my D100 got wet shooting at the beach it has developed a mind of it's own, and that +2 degree tilt drives me nuts.
Do you know if it will shoot IR?
