“Overall, I’m very pleased with the Nikon D200’s performance so far. I have yet to push the continuous shooting mode to see what my real-world results are. Nikon claims performance at 5 frames per second with bursts up to 37 JPEGs (Fine-Large) or 22 NEF (RAW) images. I also need to do some tripod and macro lens shooting before I feel I’ve really given the D200 a full test.

My biggest frequent problem with the camera has been the hair-trigger response of the four-way rocker that you use to navigate the menu. Several times I feel like I’ve barely touched the thing and before I know it I’ve zoomed to three menu items past the one I was trying to select. This could be an issue that only shows up in random units, or it could be more universal.”
