    I use a Nikon because they feel waayyy better in my hand.
    And they handle high ISO better than Canons.
    I am also partial to Nikon because I like the menu and general layout more than Canon.

    Canon are also megapixel whores......

    I like Nikon because M,S,A,P makes a whole lot more sense than Tv,Av, PQRsuTyiFIOhb.

    The bodies are way WAY more solid than the canon ones. I hate the plasticy feel of the canon cameras. Not to mention everytime you squeeze a canon, it creaks.

    Two words: Nikon Lenses


    But if you want to shoot canon, more power to ya. Just enjoy what you shoot, and dont worry about the rest. It doesnt matter what we like...it only matters what YOU like.

    By what you just said, it actually sounds like everyone has a Canon.

    maybe if you a noob the turnknob might throw you off lol .... i like the feel of the d90 better than xsi ... but xsi is better than d40/d60. canon xs sucks donkey wang as far as the "feel" catagory goes. but the 30/40/50d are awsome. but i do like the d300 (not at the price point tho)

    and canon offers WAY more lenses, u think their glass is better?

    the only reason im thinking nikon, the new d5000 looks nice

    If you've only handled a digital rebel then you are unqualified to comment on Canon build quality as a blanket statement. At the same time, the build quality between the entry Nikons and Canon are functionally identical, with Nikon just leading the way in the ability to dress up plastic.

    And for what it's worth, all of the pro photographers I know shoot Canon. Until the D3x Nikon didn't offer the resolution that commercial and magazine shooters needed to justify using a 35mm SLR over medium format.

    i sell about 3-5 canon 5d mark ii a week ...... i would say im unqualified to comment as a whole on canon as a manfacturer. but nikon, their point and shoots, the way they package their cameras .... i just dont trust em! your comment is very condensending :( ... i didnt say i dont like nikon or canon is nikons baby's daddy lol ...... but i deal with high end cameras all the time ... i dont own one(i have a canon 30d). but maybe this post is my way of getting all the info i want may it be negative or positive so i dont go buying $2000 lenes from a crummier company? i dunno, im bored at work and i have nothing better to do! lol

    Chill out, I was agreeing with you if you read my comment.

    ...or take note of my signature...


    My opinion from using both is that while to some extent Nikon does things to make the bodies perceivably "better built" there are just not substantial differences in the construction of the cameras at given pricepoints. A lot of people handle a rebel in the store, and use that to blast around the internet that "all Canons are built of plastic" and creak or some such.

    I like the control layout and the feel in my hand.

    I have to say though, judging from your replies you're just a Canon fanboy trying to stir up trouble because you're "bored at work"
