Awesome info SUPERDAVE (i think I see why you have think Handle you do haha )
But I used to use a d200 .. and I used the smaller lens that CAM
with the kit I bought , just went onto eBay and purchased a set of MACRO lens to use when I had that big ole set up (but was to big and I shook to much to get clear photos without a tripod was to much for me lol)
I will update my post im going to try and find a linkfor a macro set so you know what im talking about ..
Right now I just use Canon PowerShotA470 .. and when I need nice close ups , I just put my 7.5x loop or 10x loop on the end of it and BAM works like a champ . lol .. ((( Link for Macros ... http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vivitar-77m...t_4728wt_885
But good luck , the D200 take alil getting used to .. I wouldnt do much with the settings , I never putz around with them myself .. but I encourage you to research the functions of the CAM
as I did not and got frustrated lol ...
Again good luck
