comment Are there practical differences between Canon's IS and Nikon's VR?
...aaand I think the easiest/cheapest way to discover what is 'right' for you is to rent a camera from each of the 'camps' and try them out, because while both brands handle the 'business' of exposing an image (ISO, shutter speed, aperture), they go about it in slightly different ways. Some people like the 'feel' of how Canon does it... Some people prefer Nikon. Either one will get the job done (excellently), but the chattering of a thousand fanboys will fade to the background once you've tried both brands yourself. Check out sites like lensrentals.com if you don't have a local rental house...

@Tom: As you might imagine, as a photography instructor I get the 'Canon or Nikon' question all the time. I mean... All. The. Time. ;-) It's important to remember that both Canon and Nikon equipment are capable of producing exceptional images. Both Canon and Nikon have a full range of very high quality lenses. A lot of students get 'caught in the chaff' of a zillion 'Canon vs. Nikon' debates by fanboys of various stripes that seem to litter the internet, but the thing I always tell folks is that there isn't a 'right' answer, except what is 'right' for you.
