Well My D70 has decided it doesn't want to play any more so I need to replace it. I do action photography and the D70 worked ok for this, not great but ok. My other body is a Fuji S2 and there is no way it will take action shots. So here is my quandary; do I buy a D200 @$1,400 of a D80 @$1,000. I am also interested in getting the Nikkor 17 - 200 VR lens. Currently in my bag I have the D70 a Fuji S2, Nikkor 80 - 200mm f2.8 (very fast focusing), Nikkor 105mm f2.8 macro, Nikkor 10.5mm f2.8, Nikkor 17 - 70mm f3.5 - 4.5, and Tokina 28 - 200mm f3.5 - 5.6. When shooting races typically I would use the D70 and the 80 - 200mm lens on a monopod. My dad just bought the D80 and I'm impressed with it's focusing capabilities. Even though they are not as good as the D200 it is much improved over the D70. I need some advice from others who have had experience with these bodies. I need to make a discussion before the races this weekend. Thanks.
