Im my experience with both brands (Nikon prosumer bodies / Canon rebel - 1Ds seriers bodies) is that Canon has faster AF, but Nikon is more accurate and consistent. Nikon has better metering and better flash. IQ goes to Nikon easily as well for both DR and noise.

That being said whether or not any of that will make a real difference in your use is really a case of what your skill level is, your post-processing technique and lens (in case of AF).

I switched to Canon when it was vastly superior in video, the gap is closing (for lower end models at least) but its still visible.
