"What is your photography religion?"
When engaging in polite conversation you should never discuss matters of religion, politics or ask this question, "Nikon or Canon?" There are certainly devotees in each camp and they generally fall under the category of "religious fanatic".
And everyone knows that you can never trust a fanatic. Their feelings are based on emotions rather than hard facts.
So if you can't trust the devoted, who can you trust and what IS better? You have to look at the equipment objectively and ask yourself which camera delivers the features you value most best. And no one but you can decide what features you need. This is purely based on the kind of photography you enjoy doing most.
