On a wedding occasion, I learned the photographer was using D200. I have D5100. I quickly jumped in and checked the prices on Amazon (it was 2.5x expensive) and then compared it on snapsort. Now the site says D5100 is winner. The votes on the site also favor D5100 vs D200.
Should I be convinced that although the photographer was using a nearly $3000 camera but mine is better? In other words a newer lower-model camera is better than an older, higher-end one?
I would also ask this: I know price is the big difference so let's ignore the price. Let's say you are are paying $1000 for either of the cameras — which one will you buy?
