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

I made the opposite choice to you because of ergonomics.  Both are great camera systems and if you take the ergonomics out of the choice it would be down to flipping a coin since both systems have strengths and weaknesses.
