Ok so my very good friend decided to go for a DSLR, basically it's narrowed down to the Canon EOS 40D and Nikon D90, so I was just wondering if you guys have any feedback or tips on which to get? I think both of these are very good cameras, but it's always good to get some input from people who use actually use them

tnx for any input

The 40D probably going to be the better of the two if you diresgard the video feature. That would be my only resoning to go with the D90.

But then again, they're not made to directly compete.

Some features:

I was looking for a less expensive models but take a look at my thread canon or nikon I could not decide either but I got the canon after some research I found the canon to be a great fit for me. The lenses are a lil more costly though. So check out the thread I know a lot of my questions were answered there. It is only a few threads below this one

You said it in your original post- it's really hard to go wrong with either of them as an entry-level model. I went for the Canon a year and a half ago, but mainly because I could share lenses with a friend.

I admit I am a bit biased as I own 2 of them, but I would also recommend a Nikon D200 as an entry level option. You can find those pretty cheap brand new now. Excellent camera.
