I'm about to take a proper step into digital photography and buy my first decent DSLR. That isn't to say I'm quitting film. I'll be using my old Nikon FE for many years to come. I was looking around various cameras by Olympus pentax canon and Nikon and it seems the Nikon D200 fits my needs pretty well. I do have a question on the build quality of this camera for any owners out there. I had the chance to hold various cameras the other day and chose the D200 over the EOS-400D and D100 because it seemed like a durable camera. As I am not the type to constantly upgrade to stay on the latest of technological advancements, and I am not very kind to my cameras. My FE has been dropped several times, and dad even let it go off the first floor of a building once and after minor repair to the mirror mechanism it still works. How rugged is the D200? I am especially interested in any opinions from people who take it out into the snow, or into the desert. I live in the tropics in australia but constantly travel to europe. The camera will get constantly knocked about and more than likely dropped on occasion Any survival stories?
