Getting a Nikon, or a Canon?

Are you having a long time deciding which new digital SLR to get for Christmas? Do the Nikon D3 or the D300 seem so inviting, or would you rather have the Canon EOS 40D, or a 5D? Or are you on a budget and would rather get the cheap yet very useful Nikon D40?

Remember though that there are more important things to a camera than technical specs and tests.
