Making a lens change on dSLR with the camera in the on position is not advisable, due to the multiple electrical contacts on the Lens and the lens mount.

You can most probably get by with a one time occurance, but it is impossible to say exactly and precisely what the outcome will be. That is why I said only time will tell.

This might be a good time to get some more knowledge. Get a good book and spend a wekend with it. It might prolong the life of your Nikon D-200.

I see, have you any books for reccomendation?* Also, have you heard of anyone damaging their camera from changing the lens while it is on the camera?
