    I work offshore and am in that environment a good portion of the year so I am definately getting one or the other.
    Im not new to photography. I started on an N8008 moved to an n90s an F100.Recently I finally bought a D80 as my first Dslr and I while I am happy with it I dont feel comfortable bringing it offshofre with me.

    I do though have a need for the D200 with grip, but I have the means to get D2xs.
    What I like is the weight. The extra Mp for cropping and that the most used functions dont have to be accessed through the menu. Its a pain in the a** sometimes.

    Who has real world experience with both and what would you suggest?
    Pros an cons?

    Why don't you feel comfortable brining the D80 with you?

    Not weather sealed. Depending on where he lives, that can be a real issue. My question would, are the added features of the D2Xs (which is a jump over both the 200 and the D2H - which understandably has a specefic use) worth it versus just getting a weather armor for your D80 since it seems to be working out aces for you.

    You know I never even thought about or looked into weather armor.
    I guess that is something to consider.
    Thanks for the suggestion.


    Within the next couple of years I want to work my way into wedding photography as well.
