It seems like nowadays, if you ask, everybody says "get a Canon!" Although, Nikon is still quite popular, especially with the media. Personally, I'm a nikon fan myself... but I don't have very much experience with Canon. I will say that I'm a bit skeptical about the whole firmware thing with the 300D and Digital Rebel (if you don't know... one of the main differences between the 300D and the Digital Rebel is the firmware. You can hack many of the Digital Rebel's features into your 300D by updating it's firmware with the Digital Rebel's). Although I do understand that many companies do this... I still think its kinda stupid. I love my Nikon FM! Nice'n fully manual! So... which do you prefer? Why?
