Nikon D200 or Canon 5D?

Ken Rockwell

Which would you rather have: a Canon 5D or a Nikon D200?

For most everything, it’s the Nikon D200 for photographer Ken Rockwell, who owns both cameras and has taken thousands of photos with them.

But the Canon 5D takes great photos if you have the time, and especially if you use it with a tripod. It gives sharper prints; “on-screen, the 5D looks night-and-day better than my D200,” says Ken.

“For real photography outside the lab or studio, I prefer my D200 because it’s faster, easier and more consistently gets out of my way in creating great images,” he adds.
