I think it would depend on several factors. I was once a dedicated Canon fan, until I went to purchase an auto focus camera in the late 80's. Guess what, none of my lens would work because they changed the mount. (several times over the years). So when it came time to buy a DSLR, I went with NIKON. Bought a D200 and used it well for over 5 years, then bought a D810 and a few pieces of glass, including an angle finder.

In GENERAL, the Nikon gear costs a bit more than the Canon gear. Depending on the body/lens choices you make, that may not be the case. But for most people, the cost will be anywhere from marginally higher to noticeably higher. So if price is an issue, Canon tends to win more than it loses – but not by much.

I think both make great cameras. As for aftermarket service, though I've no experience with Canon repairs, Nikon needs to up their game in a serious way. My angle finder wouldn't hold position so I sent it in for warranty repair, two months later I'm still calling to find out the status and had to threaten to write Nikon's president to get a replacement, the service agent acted as though they could care less. Finally received it back after 9 weeks.

it depends on which type of customer you are. Nikkon cameras are good for professionals. The price point reflects that. Cannon cameras are good for everyday people using cameras to capture life events. The proce for Cannon products are afforable as well.
