For the money, the competition has the 5D beat.
Yes and no. Feature wise, the D200 is an awesome camera.
But image quality, the 5D wins hands down. It's a beautiful camera, and to be honest, image quality should be the FIRST and most IMPORTANT factor in deciding which camera is better.
But the D200 makes up for it by giving the consumer features that Canon won't even consider on the 5D.

Heres a newsflash mate, Nikons D40/D50/D80 are actually excellent at high-ISO and the equal of the XT/XTi to all but the fussiest.
That's the low-end. At the high end line-up, Canon has Nikon beat. I'm sure eventually Nikon will catch up though, but right now, the 5D and 1D series are much better at noise than the D2s and D200s.
