    I've checked a couple of times today. Best Buy no longer lists the Nikon D200, at any price. If you got one for $600, you got a smokin' deal.

    If you hesitated?..........................Oops!

    I guess their Circuit City stock finally depleted lol... I got one, but exchanged it for a D90.

    Cool camera, congrats to all those who took advantage of the deal!

    Bummer... Now what will we recommend in the next "D40 vs D5000" thread?

    I wonder how many of the forum users actually took advantage of that deal anyways (per the advice of someone else)?

    I might just start recommending the D3x. Forget the rest, go with the best. :thumbup:

    Honestly, I'm horribly freakin' glad that the deal is gone. I've been sitting here for the past few months wondering if I should sell my D90 and pick up a D200...use the extra money toward some glass. Now I can stop sitting here pondering about it. I've also been trying to justify to myself (and my wife) as getting it as a second body. I can finally quit that charade too.

    I sold my old D200 (80,000 clicks)for $850 3 months ago, heard about the Best Buy deal a month ago and bought a brand new one with 0 clicks and a new warranty for $600. :thumbup:

    Yea I was about to get one Monday night when the went back to 600, but then opted for the D90. Insane deal though, anyone who got one made off extremely well!

    I still think the D200 is a better camera then the D300 in some ways.

    Ergonomics: I can hold the camera all day long and feel great.

    AF system: it might not be as fast or accurate, but it's more intuitive, and for static subjects, just easier.

    Looks: I just think the D200 is a good lookin' camera.
