Hi Fota, welcome to the Cameralabs forums.
When we launched Cameralabs we decided to score products as compared to models targeted at a similar market or price point. That's why you may find a budget compact which scores the same for picture quality as a top-end DSLR. It all depends on what we're comparing it to.
Above the scores for each review you'll see what we're comparing that particular product against. So the D200 scores were compared to mid-range DSLRs, whereas the D80 scores were compared to budget DSLRs.
I hope that makes sense!
As for picture quality, the D200 and D80 are very similar, although the D200 is a much more powerful and flexible camera - you can see the main differences listed in our D80 verdict.
That makes sense.
Thanks alot Gordon!
