some users have experienced horizontal and even vertical banding lines on the images from
D200...

this really worried me.. i am getting mine in just a few hours... ouch...
There will surely be issues. It's nothing new if you are not new to this.

The problem is secondary. I am more concerned about how it is being rectified if recognised. For this kinda banding problem does it involved ripping the CCD out from its guts to be replaced? I just dun like the idea that a few months old camera need to go through this process. If its a software upgrade or minor replacement of some parts I think its still ok.

I have shot one whole series from 100-1600, no banding problems. Been using for the last 1 hr, no real issues.

Tomorrow and this weekend try try with weddings first alongside the D70..... See if i have time to post out some real pix. Coz only till January will my shoots promised with the D200 really start. Need to charge up the 3 pcs of EN-EL3a, knn cannot use EN-EL3. Hope they chg up fast enough in time for tmr.

1600 NR looks super yucky though. :p

At Aik Seng, there were 3 persons alongside with me getting the D200. ;p Super hot. Think Aik Seng is the fastest at 4.30pm arrival, followed by MS Colour / APO.

No grip till quite some time later lar. heh... :D Seriously I would not stick a grip with it for weddings (i shoot discretely) and those events which require me to shoot fast (eg celebrities), too bulky to move around fast in crowded conditions.

Even D70 with a small tamron 28-75, xiao mei mei already shy to let me shoot. :D Need to chat up with the gal and woo her before can shoot those from the top pix etc.... :D

You like that win already lor.....somebody will surely whack into this thread and suan me liao. :D

Seriously, let me go take my dinner first and check out the stuff/manual etc. But for those interested in this cam, it's quite an easy transition, shouldn't be a problem to just dive into using it if the shooter is ok with his previous Nikon cam. Of course just in case i will bring along the D70. Hopefully can have time to post some pix.

Oh....must remember die die cannot shoot RAW. :D Coz no adobe .8bi file to convert raw.
