For many years I used Canon cameras.  Then, about 15 years ago I switched to Nikon -- not because I decided Nikon was better, but because all my Canon gear was stolen and I had a chance to start over and thought I'd find out what the other system is like. I doubt I ever would have sold all my gear to try the other brand.

Both have great systems, and unless you need a rare specialty lens that only one of the companies makes, you can't go wrong with either one. I like my Nikon gear, like Roman said above, for ergonomic reasons.  And I refuse to lose sleep because the Canon 70-200 may be a little sharper this year or Nikon doesn't have enough f/4 zooms -- all such concerns are transient and no reason to switch. I'm mainly worried about improving my mediocre shooting skills.
