Beginners choice - 40D vs. D200?

Hi, I have planned to buy my first dSLR for a while and have previously had a hard time choosing between 30D and D200. I thought that it was like choosing between best IQ (High ISO) vs. best functions/construction, but now that 40D is out, it fells like that really should have everything I want and to even consider the D200 is out of the question for me.

But now I see that many of you nikonians thinks like "meh... okey, now canon have made 40D to ALMOST stand up to the D200" etc. and I don't quite get this. Is this only fan-boy talk or have I missed something in the performance of the D200?

Shouldn't the 40D clearly outperform the D200 in almost everything, exept maybe construction and ergonomy?

And oh, I'd prefer not to get answers by neither canon or nikon fan-boys, I'm sick of you...
