Canon Digital Rebel XT vs. Nikon 50d


I would like to buy a SLR digital camera but I am not sure which one to buy. There are to options:
[ul][li]Nikon d50 (6.1MP, 18-55mm lense)[\li]
[li]Canon Digital Rebel XT (8MP, 18-55mm lense)[\li]
I like the Canon much more and I guess he quiality is higher, but the lenses are more expensive. They both are about at the same price, maybe the Nikon is a bit more expensive. So the question is which one is more worthbuying.
And one more important question. Is there anyone how makes conon or nikon body compatible lenses that I might mount on the body? (In case I do not want to spend 1000s of $ on a lens just 999. :P )

Tamron maks lenses for the Cannon in a less expensive line. These can be gotten at Ritz camera outlets or online stores like Cametta on Ebay.
A telephoto lense can be had for about $200 to $300 versus the $800 for a similar Cannon model.
