When I moved from P&S to SLR's back in the '70s, I tried the Nikon and Canon offerings of the day.  This was before Image Stabilization.  It was clear, just looking through the viewfinders that I could hold the Canon much more still than the Nikon, so I got the Canon.  My best friend and photo companion used Nikon. 

Since then, I have used both Nikon and Canon, and currently all my dSLR's are Canon.

If you only get a body and kit lens, you are not invested in any brand.  When you have accumulated a dozen lenses, you are invested.  You can still change brands, but the pain of selling everything off and purchasing new gear will be felt.

When it came out, Canon's 6D probably handled low light focusing and noise issues better than everything else.  Now that time has passed, that may no longer be true.  Depending on what you want to photograph, you may not care anyway.  Technology advances.  The best pro model body today will be entry level or below in a year or two. 

Lenses are not updated/replaced as often but Canon have been working through their inventory and issuing version II of many lenses recently.  Is a Canon lens better or worse than a Nikon lens?  Don't know.  Don't care either.  The high end of both brand's lenses are generally excellent and will deliver great results.  There could be just as much variation from lens to lens from a production run as there is between comparable lenses from each brand, and if one brand has the better 135 mm lens while the other brand has the better 24 mm, what are you going to do?

Take a day, and a couple of memory cards, visit a well stocked store.  Play with everything (not just Nikon and Canon, not just dSLR's) they have in their showcases.  See what feels comfortable to hold.  See which menu systems make sense.  Put your card in the camera and take test photos.  Go home with your cards.  Look at the photos on your computer.  Think about what you liked and what you did not.  Something will speak to you.  Get that.

I have two camera that you can buy for that amount of money. Hahahahaha. Just kidding.

I prefer the Canon line because the menus make more sense than the Nikon's and there are more after market options that make your selection more fun. Just my two cents worth.

I've never owned one so I have no comment. You might try he has tests and ins and outs on just about everything.

I've shot Nikons since the Nikon S2 so you know how my opinion would go. Ha! Nikons always for me. The main reason is the GLASS. It just can;t be beat.

Check the following web site...

Ken Rockwell on the D7000

I personally use one and have had Canon, Nikon (D-40, D200, D90, and now the D7000). In some ways Canon is better, but lags far behind Nikon in technology, in many ways better than most of Nikon's FX Pro models.  

Nikon's newest DX addition is the D71000, about $300.00 more than the D7000. You can get the D7000 at B&H for $699.00, Thats about $300 off of MSRP...a heck of a deal. The only difference difference between the D7000 and the D71000 is 8 megapixels, which are totally unnecessary unless you are making 12' wide prints. 

Good luck on which you choose. Do the research and make your choice. You will be extremely happy with the D7000 if that's the way you go.

thank for good suggestion.

The best camera is the one you have with you.

As a practical matter, most landscapes don't move very quickly, so you can put the camera on a tripod and take your time.  Most cameras can do a good job with landscapes.  Some, like Trey Ratcliff have moved to mirrorless cameras.
