The Nikon D200:

Nikon D200

Announced in November 2005, the Nikon D200 replaced the Nikon D100 as Nikons primary prosumer camera, three and a half years after the D100's introduction. The D200 was a major step forward, with its 10 megapixel sensor, magnesium alloy body with sealed body seams, and improved autofocus and metering. Many pro's adopted the D200 as a backup body to their D2 series cameras, because of its similar layout and specification, but in a smaller form, with the added benefit of a built in flash.

Nikon underestimated the Initial demand for the D200, it was in short supply for many months after its introduction. The Nikon D200 won the TIPA 2006 award for Best Digital SLR in the Expert category.

The D200 was succeeded by the D300 in August 2007.
