In more recent memory, Nikon went top dog with its Nikon D300 and D3 thanks to its super high ISO and beautiful high-res LCD amongst other features. However, Canon then managed to strike back with its Canon EOS 7D and 550D in a time when Nikon's R&amp;D seems to gone MIA (missing in action). Well, the Nikon D7000 and D3100 shows that Nikon have actually been busy in that time. So with the Nikon D90 traditionally competing with the Canon EOS 50D, it makes sense for us to take a look at the Nikon D7000 against the Canon EOS 60D."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/wpt/auto/1286196402.usr11334.jpg" style="border: #d2d2bb 1px solid;" /><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/wpt/auto/1286196397.usr11334.jpg" style="border: #d2d2bb 1px solid;" /></p><p>Digital Rev has a nice comparison of these two camera's, their features, as well as a simple summary of which would be best depending on what you want.&nbsp; I don't think you could go wrong with either of them in my mind, but I am no expert as I've been dithering over which DSLR to get for over a year now.&nbsp; If you've been dithering like me, then perhaps this article will help with your decision.</p>

I'm a Canon guy and I don't think there's any comparison here. AF and metering performance, white balance, continuous shooting speed, high-ISO performance, continuous AF in movie mode, build quality, larger/brighter viewfinder, etc. ALL in favor of the Nikon. I haven't seen any detailed comparison of the image quality (nor affirmation of high-ISO performance), but Nikon has always been comparable, and pixel-peeping annoys me anyway. So unless you see a $100 (<10%) price difference (in the US anyway) as an issue or you just NEED a swiveling screen (or unless you already have a Canon lens/flash investment), this is a serious no-brainer. They are basically in different classes now. This is a VERY down year for Canon. :(
