    .. . . . you really can't see any significant advantage or disadvantage
    going either way (8 to 10 or 10 to 12). You really wouldn't be able to
    see a difference in print even at very large sizes.

    .. . . it would be a pity to label it as 'semi-pro' because in use you
    soon realize that it's a professional camera. Which brings us to the
    competition, from a build/features point of view it's clearly ahead of
    the Canon EOS 20D/30D and in that respect a step above the EOS 5D, a
    baby D2X.

    That should fan the flames nicely.

    Glad you summed it up, I couldn't get past the 29 pages of Nikon Capture
    review...
    If this camera had 14+ MP, I'd buy it today. I might buy it anyway, 'cause
    I know I'd like it, and could make money off it, too.

    Nah.
    I think it's just a fact.
    Nikon answered a few build issues that Canon still hasn't within that price
    range.
    I'm a Canon user, but that is just plain true.
    Good for Nikon.

    Those producing excellent images with any of the mentioned cameras
    couldn't give a hoot.

    Most buyers of the D200 are going to be Nikon lens owners. Period. So
    comparing relatively unimportant things like build across brands is
    accademic at best and inciting flame wars at worst.

    And as a "worst" that's about as trivial as it gets.

    Cheers,
    Alan.
