Yeah, it's a dot number. The screen is VGA (640x480) hence, 1/3 the amount of "dots" to get the actual pixels. Somewhat deceptive way of stating it, but whatever. I don't really give a darn about the screen, so long as it functions acceptably for menus and histograms. Actually, if anything the larger screen just increases the chances that it could become damaged (with a $$$ repair to boot). I haven't seen any pics of these cams with the screen protector, but I'd imagine they'll still have them (I certainly hope so anyway).
This really makes me glad I didn't buy a D200 earlier this year. Now the question becomes, D300 right away, or get a used D200 on the cheap, and wait for D300 prices to come down, and potential bugs to be addressed?
