I shoot with Canon, Nikon and Olympus, with that said, i'm always grabbing my Canon, reasons why: canon's lenses run the best of any i shot with, out of the box with even the cheapest kit lens i'm able to get excellent shots,(it takes some work with that 18-55, but it can be done. Also canon has the largestselection of lenses to fit any budget. I own a rebel xt, and xti, and am about to purchase a 5d to add to my arsenal. I shoot alot of wedding and portriat photography and these camera's no matter what you read about beginner, prosumer, provide me with the shots to keep my business up, running and customers happy. with that said, i cannot get the color saturation i need with my nikon d80, and while i can get some excellent shots with my olympus e500, its slower than the canon, to top it off the lenses are expensive because your stuck with the zuiko four third lens. My best advice to you is to get to a local camera/photography store and ask them to let u try them out..even in the store you can get a better judge for your self

Hi. I bought D40, but I have found some little differences between both. Canon accesories are cheaper. The D40 you have to look through the view finder, in other words, you cannot watch the picture you are going to take through the LCD screen. For those two reasons I would have preferred CANON XT. Pros: Nikon takes really nice pictures.
