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.

An absolute opposite for me.   I find Nikon's horizontal dials physically painful to operate.   Could be the result of an old skiing injury.   After 5 minutes with a Nikon, I put it down with my right thumb on fire.

Canons, especially the larger ones (XXD and XD), felt like a natural extension of my hands right away, with no prior experience with either brand.   60D in particular, felt like it was designed specifically for me.
