Once you see the comparison above,
I suggest you do not need to be affected by the debate on the forums, and other myths have you heard between Canon and Nikon.  

You must have a strong personal principle. You are going to be a user of the camera, so you have to be a master who had a strong belief, whether you will choose Canon or Nikon.

You are also free to choose another camera like the Pentax K-30 or other cameras like the Olympus E-5, Sony Alpha A77; you can even glance at the cameras manufactured by Sigma, SD 15 or SD1.
