I realize that lots of people are jumping at Nikon's recently announced Nikon D90, particularly for its video capability. In fact, when I watched Chase Jarvis's pre-release demo video, I wanted to buy one myself.
But, the fact that I had recently gotten a Nikon D300 made it a hard sell to convince Katie we needed yet another camera in our house.
Both the D300 and the D90 are amazing cameras. But, I saw on the banner at amazon today that they are clearing out the Nikon D200 at an excellent price. If you're in the market for a pro-sumer camera but want to spend less money than the D300 or D90, this is definitely a camera to look at.
