I've been a Canon fan ever since I sold video cameras at a crappy little appliance store (about 20 years ago). They (Canon) were simply the best quality, and there lenses were superb. When I decided to buy my first slr/dslr I did ALOT of research. It was really easy, based on quality, features, and budget to choose my current Canon camera. I have learned quite a bit in a short time from this camera and this forum. I am convinced that I am the only thing holding this camera back from its true potential (for now).
Well really, the biggest reason I bought Canon is because my sister-in-law is a huge Nikon lover, and I really don't like my sister-in-law!

My 20D is my first Canon. Nikon boy in the film days.

To be honest when I was looking for a DSLR I got a good deal on the Canon and couldn't find a good deal on a Nikon. I figured since I wasn't used to either makes ergonomics then either would be find.

I find it amusing sometimes that the thing that brings out the most "wow"s is narrow depth of field...and any DSLR can do that. After that it does have to do with the sharpness, colors and contrast but that can be manipulated in post.

OP's got a good thread going here, kudos.
The whole thing started with Canon's P&S cameras as most of them have underwater housing available. Since my wife and I are divers, that's a no brainer to go with Canon.
It's natural that I went with Canon dslr after getting used to the P&S. Besides the lens line up is great. Not that I'm going to buy many of them but I do feel like having the choices. From Xti to 50D, I'm satisfied and planning on going ff in the near future.
PS: I still have my Nikon FM2 and several lenses that I don't know what to do with them as I don't shoot films any more.

I used to shoot Nikon film, got some great shots. Then I picked up the 300D and just about crapped my pants.

I never looked back. I really like that the lenses are way cheaper for same/similar performance as compared to Nikon equivalents.

When I was in Japan at a touristy shrine, a Swedish guy asked me to take a pic of him and his girl. He handed me his Nikon, and it took me a sec, but I figured it out. He offered to reciprocate, and looked puzzled at my camera. He said "God I hate these piece of sh*t Canons," no attempt to hide his distaste. I responded, "ya, I just can't stand Nikons." We laughed about it pretty good.

On another side note, I had a friend who was looking to buy a DLSR, and he was talking Nikon. I was so against him going that route, I actually gave him a 30D, Nifty, and 28-80 along with a flash to make sure he stayed on our side. I later sold him a 28-135mm IS for $150, and he's currently borrowing my 10-22. It worked :D
