hi ... you cant go wrong with either brand ... and you cant go wrong
with either of the 4 models you mention ...

traditionally ----- IMHO gleaned from talking with lots of
photographers and reading lots of online reviews and blogs) -----
Nikon costs a bit more than Canon ... Nikon is a bit heavier than
Canon (important if you plan on hiking a bit to look for birds and
VERY important if you dont plan on using a tripod) ... and Nikon
seems to be the "chosen" brand for landscape photographers but Canon
seems to be the "chosen" brand for action and sports photographers
(just my impression after spending lots of lunch hours browsing the
internet) ... and, while some online reviews say Nikon takes just a
bit better quality images, I feel that statement ignores the quality
of the photographer himself/herself ...

here's a nice website to read reviews on ... http://dpreview.com ...
click on "buying guide" and then start browsing ...

Lyn (who uses Canon) ...
