What's better: Canon 40d or Nikon d200 with 17-55?
Apr 5, 2008

I'm considering getting either:

Canon 40D with the 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM
Nikon D200 with 17-55mm G DX

Without considering the price, what is a better combination? I'm not beholden to any brand, just want to get the better equipment for portraits, landscapes, and walkabout shots.

Does the difference between the cameras overwhelm the differences in the lenses, or vice versa? I usually consider the lens first, but in this case is there an overall Canon advantage, as the 40D is a newer camera over D200?

I'm posting this on both Canon and Nikon forums, so I'm probably going to get it from both camps!
