Nikon and Canon both make excellent DSLR's and lenses. They keep leapfrogging each other, so over time, the two brands are overall equal in design and performance.
But quality control and repair support, hence the aggravation factor, may not be equal. Any thoughts?
We can all tell stories about our narrow experiences, so it is especially informative to hear from those who have extensive experience with both brands.

Nikon is still a good bet, even better than Sony, but Canon is the best bet if you want to know you will have bodies for your lenses in ten years.
As for the debate about service; I think that in this day in age customer service is dying out in favour of cost savings. They have you already with big dollar sunk into the system. You're not going to switch just because of bad service; particularly if the service on the other side is just as bad (going to switch right back). I think customer service is a race to the bottom these days.
