Would like to print A3+ , in the menu what would be my best option, size priority or optimal quality.

Go for the best quality, i.e. RAW and resize in CaptureOne/Photoshop etc etc
Which menu Steve.
Surely you are shooting at the maximum size allowed by the D200 which I can quite remember off-hand, but approx 3800 x 2600.
So at 300dpi that gives approx 13 in x 8.6 in.
A3 paper is 16 x 11, so not far short (not sure of exact dimensions for a3+). From here you have two options, or possibly three depending on interpretation.
Now I no expert on the terminology or printing processes, but
Resize the image in PS (or PSE or PSP) to 4800 pixels on the longest size.
Print at a lower dpi directly, approx 250 dpi would do it and not be that noticeable - this would be a conscious decision on your part.
Or use PS and set the print size in the preview to A3 and approx 120% which would allow the software to do all the work for you.
Any of these routes should give a satisfactory result.
So hopefully by interpretation of what you need to get an A3+ print you can determine your menu setting.
well i get A2 straight odd a D70 and that's only 6.1mp
so the D200 would give A1 without any trouble.
I think you're referring to the options available in the Shooting menu.......in that case, 'Optimal Quality' is the best choice.
I have a 2A0 (1682 x 1189) print of the image used on the recent FPME front cover (blue Porche headlight) - taken with a D70 (6Mp)...
Edit: That should have said 300ppi, the dpi being determined via the printer and settings.
Thanks everyone, thats a great help
