Nikon D200 vs. Canon EOS-5D Muscle Shoals AL

The D200 is a much faster camera with a more logical ergonomic design. With the Nikon, users can turn the camera on and snap off a shot in a single motion - an action that would require two hands and far more time with the 5D.

Head-to-Head: "The Nikon D200 - Canon EOS 5D Head-to-Head Review marks the debut of our comparative review format. There's plenty of debate about whether the 10.2 megapixel Nikon D200, at $1700, and the $3200, 12.8 MP full-frame Canon EOS 5D even ought to be compared - the price and sensor size differences are often cited points.
