Here’s the facts: Canon wins 7, Nikon wins 7 and there are 14 draws.
Pretty evenly matched but which factors matter the most to you? And why is Canon $500 more expensive?
Nikon’s higher megapixels count is more important to me than Canon’s comparative playback but Canon’s ISO range is more important to me than Nikon’s built in flash, so it really comes down to personal preference.
