Default Nikon vs Canon

I have a Nikon D40 and was looking to get a different DSLR or a P&S that was somewhat comparable and easier to use. Any suggestions?

I'm a Nikon person through and through. I currently have a P80 as my point and shoot and a d70s as my dslr. I adore my d70 but my next investment is a nicer one, not sure model yet as I can't afford it now. But it will be a Nikon.

I would suggest you to rent Canon camera and just to test it, if you like it you'll change.

Go to the camera store and check out a couple of different cameras. You may find one of the canon rebels more your speed if you don't like the nikon interface, or you may want to look at some of the point'n'shoots. Also try out sony, pentax and might find working with one of them better suited to your own tastes.

it all depends upon the lens system of the camera and i think Nikon is much worthy as compared to Canon cameras as per future uses.

Nikon is the best in all aspects, i have been using both of them and i found Nikon to be much promising.

Lens quality is key, it does not really matter if you choose a Canon or Nikon body.

PS: There is nothing like a Canon L lens.

May I ask what you're looking for that you're not getting on your D40?

I work in a camera store so I may be able to help :P

In terms of Canon vs Nikon, really there isn't better brand in the 2. It's about your own needs, and ergonomics based on personal preference. I've shot both and thoroughly enjoy both.

Default I've only ever shot with Canons

I started with a Canon Rebel waaaay back and then went to a Rebel S then a Rebel XT and now I'm on to a Rebel T2i. We'll see what next year brings. ))
