What are the pros and cons of copper vs steel roofing? Is there a large cost difference?

Copper prices are fairly low right now but, still, yes, there is a difference. Long term, copper will probably be more maintenance free as it does not have a paint finish to worry about. However, with a copper roof, you need to control the water run-off so that it doesn't streak and stain siding, concrete, etc. I hope this helps a little. Use this website to find some products you like and then investigate them with their manufacturers. There are coated steel roofs which have a new or aged copper look.
