Ok, thanks again for that. If I will notice a marked improvement in my images with a D7000 from a D200 I might make the purchase. Otherwise I can just go for the cheaper option of a dedicated good HD video camera.

Just an update to my pondering. I have been advised by stock video makers that the Canon T3i is excellent for HD video and good still image quality. Would this be better quality than my Nikon D200 ?

Nikon d200 can not take video,if you want that feature I would suggest Canon T3i or Canon 60D. Excellent HD video quality especially with prime lens.

Thanks Fritz. I already have the D200 but after using it for over 7 years it's become limited.

For the lens with the Canon T3i, would something like the sigma 17-70mm a good choice ? It seems better than the kit lens.

Well Sigma 17-70mm F2.8-4 DC MACRO OS HSM it's not perfect but better, much better than kit lens 18-55. If you use Canon T3i mainly for video than prime lens is first choice like inexpensive Canon EF 50mm F1.8 II, Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM, Canon EF 35mm F2.0 or Canon EF 50mm F2.5 Macro.
Whatever you choose you won't mistake they are excellent especially Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM.
Highly recommended, won't get better lens for the price and image quality is simply amazing.

Ok, will do. The reason I was looking at the Sigma is because i want to avoid changing lenses for every different shot thus limiting dust as well as the hasstle. I am used to using my kit lens for the Nikon.

I have decided on the Canon 24-105 lens for a good all rounder for video and photos but I am not quite sure weather to go for a full frame Canon that shoots video. The reason being for my creative landscapes etc. Kill 2 birds with one stone and get a decent stills camera. The 600D (not sure why people call it a T3i) looks a great camera for the money BUT you lose so much of the wide angle because of the smaller sensor. Decisions decisions !

Canon names the same models differently for Europe, USA and ASIA.

Not an SLR as such but I have been happy using a Panasonic G6 Micro 4/3 camera for video. It offers full manual exposure control (including iso) during video mode. It records in HD video (later Panasonic models can record in 4k.) Another great thing about these mirrorless cameras is you can use heaps of old, manual film lenses with adaptors (35mm format, medium format etc.) I regularly use Canon FD lenses with my G6.
