    I already have a D3100 and 2 lenses(18-55 AF-S VR and 55-300 AF-S VR)

    I am seriously thinking about buying a used D200 as they are so cheap and have a great spec and reputation.
    I'm not concerned about the slight drop in MP(14.2 v 10.2) as the D200 will give me a lot more flexibility as I will be able to take advantage of all the older AF lenses out there.

    My questions are

    Will the D200 be able to meter and expose OK with my current AF-S lenses
    Will it autofocus with them as it has an in-body AF motor and the lenses have AF motors built in

    I have a D200 and can confirm that AF-S lenses will work well. In fact all Nikon fit lenses other than the very early non-AI lenses will work on it (I have some AI lenses that I use on mine).

    Ergonomically, it will be a huge change from your D3100 - I am sure you will love it!

    I've been watching the prices too, thinking of picking up a second one. Ffordes has some low shutter count ones at the moment.

    Well, so much for that
    Paid extra for Saturday delivery and it's still sitting in a depot somewhere in England

    I'll be claiming back my delivery charge

    The D200 is a sturdy camera and can yield high image-quality. As a second tier professional model, it works well with older lenses as well new.

    Got and email from MBP Photographic this morning
    Apologised for the delay and refunded my entire shipping cost
    Camera will be here between 17:37 and 18:37 today

    Pretty shoddy from the courier but good customer service from MBP

    WOW, what a piece of kit the D200 is.
    It feels like a proper camera (Note to self: Get an Optech strap, gonna need it)

    I'm gonna do something I haven't done for years.

    I'm going to read the manual before I go pressing buttonsWink
    I'm nightshift for the next few days so I've got my reading material with me.

    I cannot wait to get out and about with it though

    Enjoy it Jimbro. That's what it's all about.

    Just got mine delivered today from a reputable camera shop. The D200 has 1500 (yes, fifteen hundred or one thousand five hundred) shutter clicks -- has everything in the original box which looks like it was only ever opened twice: once to get the cam out, the other to put it back in.

    Now to sell the D5000 which itself only has 3300 shutter count...

    I bought the D200 for the CCD sensor instead of the CMOS one in the D5000 -- I also already own a D40 & D700.

    Congratulations & enjoy your new (old) camera.
