Late? How so? I've had a Canon for awhile now albeit a P&S in 2007. I've been wanting a DSLR for some time now, but didn't have the funds available. Now I do and decided to get a used kit to save some $$$. Should get it mid next week .

I've been a Nikon fan since the mid '70s and have an old F2 film camera (doesn't work now) . I'm going with Canon as there is a whole lot more third party software to work with Canon than with Nikon. I'm planning on doing a full spectrum mod by removing the IR blocking filters over the sensor. Then I can do IR and astronomy photography. I'll just put an equivalent UV/IR blocking filter on when I do normal light photography. I still like Nikon, but they're more spendy and I don't see any advantage over Canon. I'm a bang for the buck kind of guy and Canon is the better value for what I want to do IMHO.

Never argue with a fool. Onlookers often can't tell the difference.
Growing older is mandatory, growing up is optional.
My advice is free and worth every penny.
