Suchit, pleasant to see your people images, especially the focus point and selection of depth. I was thinking that D200 is an ultimate cam in the midrange Nikon category. But you have gone to D300 very soon. I am unable to understand. I am not finding any differences between the two as the man behind the cam is same :) TFS
