I was in the same position and opted for the Nikon simply because it felt right and I found the guide mode really is dummy proof (well so far at least).
Had it since begginning of the year so early days but so far so good, to busy at work to get out much.
A tip I have since been given and have used in regard to lenses is hunt down an equipment hire specialist and spend a few pounds (well OK several pounds ) and try them both, it might cost a bit but better than regretting your purchase later.
Take a look at Calumet they hire just about everything you can get cameras from £30 per day (three day weekend pay for one day) lenses from about the same.
Obviously the dearer to buy the more to hire
