I'm a Nikon user. Whenever someone asks me the silly question "which is better, Nikon or Canon", I tell them they're both excellent systems, with plenty of options, and that they should try them both to see how they fit in their own hands.

Having used both Nikon and Canon, but being an active Nikon user, the one thing that for me personally seals the deal for Nikon is the horizontal orientation of the dial(s). I just can't get used to the Canons' vertically orientated dial on the top.

Canon users who have also tried/used Nikon:

Purely in terms of ergonomics, why do you think you prefer Canon? Just curious

People adapt and usually prefer what they have got used to.  Unless you you have abnormally small or large hands, or some impairment that makes a particular movement difficult then I'd suggest that a well developed system, which Nikon and Canon both are, are going to be much of a muchness after a short time of use and familiarity.
