D90 released in 2008; D200 in 2005.
Unless the D200 is a real bargain, go for the D90. Sensors improve with each generation.

Very nice shots!

I would not do a thing to the camera. Just keep shooting. Down the road, get a newer model.
I would post a pic of mine but can't figure out how to do that on here.
