Ive owned the D200, and controls and build aside, these are two different cameras. Surprisingly, this camera's nearest competitor isnt the Nikon D200 - it is the Canon 5D. Of course, the Canon clearly bests the s5 on resolution as it should. But that's it. The Fuji gives up little else to the Canon 5D but speed.

However, since the obvious comparison is between the s5 and D200, the s5 is clearly superior to the D200 on image quality, particularly right out of the camera. In speed of operation however, the D200 leaves the s5 in the proverbial dust.

The Nikon D200 is sure and fast, very fast. Like all the latest digital Nikon's, they will keep shooting for extended periods. However, the images demand you tweak the camera and do copious amounts of post-processing. The Fuji is more deliberate. It is fast enough to get out of its own way and get the shot and as well as the next, but not fast enough to keep shooting under demanding conditions, at which the Nikon excels. It isnt that the s5 is sluggish, it is that the Nikon is just so fast.

However, once you understand the reason for this relative slowness, you can deal with it. Again, it's all about the images.

The Fuji will produce stunning images from RAW files. It will do beautiful images straight from the camera. If you are a JPEG shooter and hate processing images on the computer, this is the camera for you.

Although the metering is very, very accurate under all but the most backlit conditions, it has a tendency to underexpose the images in anything less than sunlight, so exposure compensation is a must. The good news there, is that unlike most other cameras Ive used, where exposure compensation can be hit or miss - or thoroughly ineffective, compensation is even and responsive.

I have a Nikon D200 already but after reading about this camera I decided to buy it. I am not sorry. First off, this is not the camera for you if you need to shoot high speed action shots (more than 3 FPS). This camera does one thing very well...it captures excellent detail both in highlights and shadows due to it's unique sensor.

Pro's:
1. Fantastic color
2. The best Auto white balance I have seen
3. Very beautiful skin tones right out of the camera
4. Fantastic camera body based on the Nikon D200 and can use almost all of Nikon's lenses and accessories

Con's
1. Not high speed compared to the Nikon D200
2. Will NOT work with the Nikon D200 Batteries (The D200 battery grip WILL work with fuji batteries OR rechargeable AA's)
3. High Price

From "Lets go Digital" online review... "The additional price that you pay for the Fujifilm FinePix S5 Pro in comparison to the competition can be clarified at once and will definitely not form a barrier to photographers with high requirements. The FinePix S5 Pro has definitely put Fujifilm back at the head of the race!"

I've only touched the surface here... Buy this if you want more detail in your photos. Portrait and wedding photography comes to mind when I think of this camera

This review is based on my real-world experience with the Fuji S5 Pro and not number crunching, or high-tech analyzing.
I've owned a Nikon D200 since they first appeared and absolutely enjoyed every minute of researching, learning, and shooting. I've been playing with SLR's and a few DSLR's since the mid 1980's. I've taken night classes in digital imaging and all the other related stuff so I'm somewhat familiar with photography. I've wanted to see what all the "5 stars," super reviews, etc. was going down with the Fuji S5 Pro. A neighbor of mine opted to for-go his purchase of a D300 and buy an S5 Pro....I told him "are you nuts!!" From 3 months of his S5 Pro he showed me a number of people, nature, and landscape shots. I asked how much PP he did to them and he assured me...."nothing, not a thing."
The portraits looked better than professional, the landscapes looked postcard ready, and the nature shots were stunning. Granted, every photographer does not use the same settings and techniques, and of course there are variables to everything you compare, but I couldn't figure how he shot such unrealistic, beautiful images right out of the camera. After much debate, I took the plunge and got one. I damned near became obsessed with learning as much as I could and practiced on almost everything I could. After about 2 months.....

NOW...IMO REAL WORLD REVIEW:

1. The dynamic range, color, low noise/high ISO and detail is really remarkable.
2. I like the familiar, solid D200 "feel" about the camera.
3. "Fast" (fps) is something one must determine based on applications;
Weddings, portraits, walkaround, etc.....yes, following child down a soccer field with finger held down on shutter release....no.
4. Big RAW files yes, but tolerable with a 4-8MB CF card.

I have owned the Nikon D70, D200 and currently still have the D80, D300 and Fuji S5. If low light photography is your cup of tea...then this is a very good camera. It beats the D70, D80 and D200 (anything over ISO 800 on these cameras are pretty much useless). However, since the D300 has arrived, (not to mention the D3), it is no longer my favorite low light camera. The D300 performs better in this area. It is also faster in fps and has a much bigger and clearer LCD screen. However, the S5 images at ISO 800 and above do give a grainy film like quality, which make the photos look quite good.
Dynamic range wise...i think the S5 is still better when set to 400%. If i had rated this camera back in Oct 2007, I would give it 5 stars. Since it is 2008 July, only 4 stars.
The good: High Dynamic Range, Very good low light capabilities, well built, incorporates Nikon excellent wireless flash system, auto-iso, film like grain/noise at higher iso
The bad: slow, very very bad menu (absolutely horrible!), LCD images of photo all look blurry...low resolution LCD screen?, can only use Fujifilm batteries...so your nikon ones won't be compatible!
