I have been using my D200 since 1/06 and I am very happy with it. It is user friendly, a lot of controls that were in the Menu in the D70, are now readily available on the body. I get very nice photos provided I use the right lens, exposure, etc for the job;))). I kept my D70 as backup.

Thanks Brigit, That is some good Info. I am planning on getting one hopefully in the next two or three month. I have a D70 and really like it. The main reason I would like to have the D200 is If I read right the D200 can use non autofocus lens. and I have several good old lens that I can use on it. Thanks jim123

Why can't you use non-AF lenses on your D70? Just set to camera to manual.

You can use the manual focus but your meatering systen want work. You can guess at the exposure or use a hand held meater.

Not entirely true. If you use a manual focus lens on a modern DSLR you stop the lens down manually and let the camera control Shutter Speed based on its own metering. When you stop the lens down you let less light in, the camera will see this and adjust shutter speed by itself if you are in AV/Aperture Priority mode. So shoot Aperture Priority often known as AV mode, adjust aperture manually on the lens, camera sees less light and adjusts shutter speed accordingly. You can go full manual as well..

I would not say that you are wrong. But It does not work that way on my D70. Infact my D70 will not take a picture with a manual focus lens on any thing but manual, then you guess at your exposure until you get a picture. Not hardly worth the time. Thanks for your info.

Manual mode is the only mode that the D70 I have will take a picture using a manual focus lens. I have friends that have D70s and Cannons that have the same problem. It will take a picture in Manual mode but your Metering system will not work. You can use a hand held meter and set the F stop and Shutter speed and take a picture.

And that is just what the D70 manual tells you. But with the D200, you can use your metering system with non AF lenses.

Humm, I have done it with 2 Canon models myself in TV mode. It works fine. Tell me will the camera take a photo in TV mode with a manul lens on the Nikon?
