"Nikon D200/Aimee Baldrige!"5.0 starson by sealsong
Pros: Superior build quality, Intuitive, Ergonimic design typical of Nikon, Accurate metering far superior to the competition, Built in flash, Same image processing engine as D2X but with custom built CCD.
Cons: None that I have found so far
Summary: First of all, I've had the D200 for two weeks now and it is amazing. I currently own the D2X, the 5D, the 20D, the D50 and have also owned the 1Ds. This is without doubt the most pleasurable to use over all and if I could only keep one (which I'm well on my way to doing) it would be the D200........and the F6 (I know I only said one but the worlds best analogue SLR is in a league reserved only for it's self). Now on to Aimee Baldrige. One user wrote "Aimee Baldrige's review sucks!" My opinion is that not only does it suck, ALL OF HER REVIEWS SUCK!! However I do not blame her as she is only the messenger and you know what they say about not shooting the aforementioned. I blame the wigs at C|NET! Can't you guys get someone worthy of our respect? Someone who actually knows and has a passion for what she's doing as opposed to someone who looks like she's read a bunch of other ill written reviews and decided to repeat what we all already know? It is not her fault, get someone who will tell us somthing about the product from a perspective that is beneficial to us, get someone who is passionate will you please!! As we're on the subject, how is it that users feel inclined to write assinine comments like "this is the camera we've all been waiting for" without actaully having the product in their hands or indeed owning it? If people are going to review products without having any first hand experience, then what does that say about the integrity of this site?
