Chris & Jayanand,

I am not repeating the opinions of "some internet Guru" , but am going by 
side by side tests that I have done with both cameras.  What you consider a 
usable image and what I consider a usable image 
are apparently two different things.  I wanted the Nikon to compare 
favorably with the Canon, simply because I don't like Canon's dominance in 
the DSLR market and up to 400 iso I find the two 
comparable however above that speed in my opinion the Nikon falls short.  
Product loyalty is fine and I hope that Nikon comes up with a body that 
matches or surpasses the Canon product, but thus 
I haven't seen it.  I have high hopes for the D200 but so far we haven't had 
one in the store long enough to give one a fair test, ( we are getting very 
few of them, one at a time,  and they don't stay 
around very long).  I gave my advice on personal experience, not on here 
say. If you don't agree with me that's OK, but I stand by my assessment and 
until I see something to change that opinion my 
recommendation stands.  You can take it or leave it, but that's the way I 
see it.
