I would like to retire my Nikon D50 for the semi pro one. After doing someresearch, Itcomes down to S3 pro and D200.

I like Fuji's color, but the S3 is 2 years old tech already and slow.

D200 has rough body and newer tech. however, some people said The color can't beat S3 pro,

Which one is better?

Thanks

These cameras are out of my price range, but from what I have read, the S3 is a good camera for a wedding photographer. Sports photographers and people who have to take a lot of pictures fast would do better with the D200.

I heard that Fuji was offering a buffer upgrade some months back which would increase the speed and depth of its burst mode.

Looks like you already know the difference - the S3 pro has a very nice sensor with better color and dynamic range, but the D200 handles much nicer and is faster. It comes down to what do you want to shoot? Here is a detailed spec comparison:
