I think camera preferences are really personal. I have always used Canon cameras, and have never been dissapointed with the performance.My first camera was a (now 30 years old) canon film camera, and now I use a Canon 300D (4 years old).
The low light performance of the new Nikons is second to none ... unbelivable how they can produce low-noise pictures at such high ISO. Stunning.
Still love my Canons though
