Hi, I'm newly registered. My photography experience goes back to the 1950's. I've done professional photography from animal portraiture to Fortune 500 commercial product photography. I left professional photography 6 years ago and sold the last of my studio and camera equipment last year except for a studio flash setup and a few tripods. I bought a Nikon D50 to get started with digital photography and have used it almost daily to do web product shots for my e commerce web sites. It is an amazing piece of equipment for its price and puts out the goods without complaining or failing. I'm now looking for a higher resolution camera for personal and pleasure use. Unlike the small jpegs I make with the D50, I want to be able to make larger prints. I've looked at the D200 and the new D80 and I think either one would suit the requirement just fine. I've checked out the specs and read some posts in the equipment forum. I'm wondering if someone can tell me fairly simply what the D200 provides over the D80. It is quite a bit more expensive but the specs alone don't seem to justify the differential. Comments?
