    D40 vs D200

    I am new to this forum, and will probably be back to read and catch up on nikon cameras. I have a D40 and it is very good for family pics and vacations. But, I have heard a lot about the D200 and wonder if that camera is that much better than a D40. I would like to know if someone thinks its really worth it to get a D200 body, or just stay with the D40.

    Is it that much better?

    Thanks
    ​Jeff

    Profile done. I have read many reviews about the D40 and D200 but am curious about someones personal opinion about the two cameras. Like I said, I have the D40, and wonder if the D200 is that much better.

    ​Thanks

    It is much better but both models are outdated and have long been replaced. The D200 replacement is the D300 and the D40 would be the D3200. The newer models have much more to offer. Fotojack will probably jump in to say differently.

    I get a lot of info from Ken Rockwell's website. He seems to be informed but it may just be another opinion.

    Magic words. Opinion or Ken Rockwell?

    I just want to know what I can buy that is 700 or less and is better than the D40. I bought it at the time cause of the weight, or lack of. Its not bad to carry around for a couple of hours while on vacation. The D200, although old model, I read is very good.

    You will not find many Ken Rockwell fans here. He tends to post for one reason only and that is money. Basic info he has can be gotten from the Nikon site and his opinion.... Well, take it with a grain of salt. Between the two cameras you are asking about Marcel hit is pretty much on the head. They are both outdated at this time and there are newer cameras out there that are much better and probably cost less. Look at the D3200, D5100 or D5200 or even the D7000. All great cameras.
