I'm curious what effect the 10.2 MP Nikon D200 will have on the upcoming DM. The reason for that is that up to now, the only DSLR's that I am aware of that could meter MF lenses were the high end Nikons-- Canon's MF lenses were incompatible with the EOS line from the 1980's. Now Nikon has a DSLR with the same general specs as the specs for the DM, 10MP, a CCD sensor,and essentially the same MF capability with all Nikkor lenses going back to the 1980's. The street price for the D200 is about $1700, and a 24/2.8 Nikkor (for a 36mm equivalent) and a 28/2 or a 35/2 (for a 42-52mm equivalent) run about $400 for the pair. I've handled one and it's built like a tank-- it is built on the F100 chassis. Much as I like the 35/2 Summicron etc, there's no way that a DM body will be worth an extra $3000 just to be able to use it. Other than just the fun factor of having something different, is there any reason at all to buy a DM?
