I find the Nikon body's grip design is easier on the hand than the
Canon's; a little bit less cramped. But it depends on your hand size.
Try both and imagine standing around holding the camera in your right
hand, ready to use. For me, it makes a difference.
Also, I do struggle to understand how people can pay so much for
lenses and accept using them in total manual mode. That is, I
believe, what you'd be faced with if you teamed a Canon body with the
Nikkor 10.5mm lens. Of course, there are other lens options. But that
You need to take a couple more shots around with the 10.5mm than with
the Sigma 8mm, but the optical quality of the lens is generally
considered to be better. And you'll end up with a slightly higher
resolution final result as well.
You may want to consider the Fuji S5Pro as an alternative to the
D200, as it uses the D200 body but delivers a better dynamic range
than most. I chose that, and I've been very happy with it. Well,
apart from the Fuji software, which is worse than average for camera
manufacturer application software! :-)
But Bibble Pro and CS3 does it for me anyway.
