Few others have - the D200 is easily the better camera.

22 months after the D200 launch Canon will have a good answer at a good price point to the D200 in the 40D, unless Nikon reduce the price of the D200.

What Canon do not have in the D40 is anything remotely near the D300, which in many respects improves on the D2xs, and has a launch price similar to the D200.

Which you go for is your decision - but of the 4 the D300 is easily the best camera overall.

Whilst the camera and lens can be important the photographers skill and imagination are much more important in achieving good pictures.
