I think I'm going to go with the D200 18-200 Combo.
That is if I can find a way to scrape togather the money.
I will let ya'll know how it turns out.

One of the 1500 I took on the most brilliant (light levels) day...

Great colours for the brightness of the day and the dryness of our drought effected landscape.

Everyone wants to get onto the front page....

Cheers G

I finally made up my mind and purchased the D200/18-200 kit.

I have been both pleased and overwhelmed with the camera so far. The camera does have a lot of settings to get used too, however there seems to be plenty of guides avaliable online to help point me in the right direction.

I'm planning on using this camera primarily for baby photos and for my older son's daytime soccer games.

I was concerned about the D200's built in flash for the baby photos so I went ahead and picked up the SB 600 flash in case I needed it. I have been very impressed with the D200 flash so far, so pleased that I haven't even opened the box of the SB 600.

My question for everyone is do you think the D200 built in flash is good enough for the baby photos? If it is I wouldn't mind returning the unopened SB 600 for a refund.

If ya'll recommend keeping the SB 600 do I need a diffuser or bounce attachment? On my old N8008 I had a nice diffuser and Stroboframe camera flash bracket for my SB 24
In the intrest of ease of use and traveling light I'm hopeing an setup like this won't be needed at this time. My wife will use the camera some and I'm really would like to keep it as simple as possible for her to use. The D200 by its self seems to be easy for her to use in the Programmed Auto mode.

I also had to get a Quantaray Professional Series UV filter and a circular polarizer for the 18-200, is that brand good? or should I order another brand? such as Hoya or Nikon? My local Wolf Camera has a poor selection of quality filters.

I purchased the D220 kit from Ritz online due to the no sales tax and free shipping offer they have. This saved me 9% on the camera. I bought the flash and other items locally as an after thought.

Thanks in advance
