18.5MPvs 16.9MP (Nikon D7000)
2.Has a flip-out screen
Yesvs No (Nikon D7000)
Flip-out screens are useful for doing tricky shots.
575gvs 690g (Nikon D7000)
4.Explicitly better video recording quality
1,080 x 30fpsvs 1,080 x 24fps (Nikon D7000)
5.Has a stereo microphone
Yesvs No (Nikon D7000)
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
6.Has a built-in HDR mode
Yesvs No (Nikon D7000)
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
99.8mmvs 105mm (Nikon D7000)
8.Significantly higher resolution (screen)
1040k dotsvs 921k dots (Nikon D7000)
A higher screen resolution provides a sharper image, making it easier to review your photos.
9.Measurably higher resolution
1,250 x 833pxvs 1,176 x 784px (Nikon D7000)
10.Has a touch screen
Yesvs No (Nikon D7000)
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.
11.Has touch autofocus
Yesvs No (Nikon D7000)
The autofocus is immediately set to the subject by just touching it on the touch screen.
12.Significantly less shutter lag
0.131svs 0.247s (Nikon D7000)
The amount of time it takes the camera to take a photo, without having to focus.
13.Cheaper lenses on 650D
A good micro 4/3 f2.8 zoom costs a fortune, and there are all sorts of compatibility problems too I think. For Canon there are many good lenses available, cheaper, second hand, and they'll just work.

2. Nikon D7000

22 Reasons why Nikon D7000 is better

Comparing Nikon D7000 vs Canon EOS 650D

1.Clearly larger sensor
23.6 x 15.6mmvs 22.3 x 14.9mm (Canon EOS 650D)
The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
2.Considerably more focus points
39vs 9 (Canon EOS 650D)
The more focus points the more flexibility in picking which part of the scene to focus on. They also give the image sensor a better probability in identifying the right area of the scene to focus on in more automatic modes.
3.Substantially lower noise at high ISO
1167ISOvs 722ISO (Canon EOS 650D)
The maximum ISO at which the device still captures excellent quality images. Source: DxOMark.
4.Measurably faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
6fpsvs 5fps (Canon EOS 650D)
Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
5.Distinctly better image quality
80vs 62 (Canon EOS 650D)
A device's overall image quality score considers: color depth, dynamic range and low light performance. Source: DxOMark.
6.Substantially longer battery life
1050shotsvs 440shots (Canon EOS 650D)
CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.
7.Has WiFi
Yesvs No (Canon EOS 650D)
The device can connect to WiFi.
8.Appreciably better color depth
23.5bitsvs 21.7bits (Canon EOS 650D)
The better a device's color depth the more color nuances it can distinguish. Source: DxOMark.
9.Appreciably faster maximum shutter speed
0.000125svs 0.00025s (Canon EOS 650D)
A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.
132mmvs 133.1mm (Canon EOS 650D)
11.Noticeably more battery power
1900mAhvs 1120mAh (Canon EOS 650D)
12.Notably wider dynamic range
13.9Evsvs 11.2Evs (Canon EOS 650D)
The better the dynamic range the system captures a wider number of values from dark to light leading to more details in low and highlights. Source: DxOMark.
13.Vastly less body volume
1046cm³vs 1046.7cm³ (Canon EOS 650D)
14.Has a microphone in
Yesvs No (Canon EOS 650D)
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
77mmvs 78.8mm (Canon EOS 650D)
16.Has a built-in focus motor
Yesvs No (Canon EOS 650D)
The focus motor moves the lens in order to autofocus. For system cameras, having a focus motor in the camera's body allows you to use a wide range of lenses, including lenses which do not have their own focus motor. For compact cameras, a focus motor is usually built-in.
17.Has GPS
Yesvs No (Canon EOS 650D)
GPS enables global positioning, useful in map, geo-tagging or navigation apps.
18.Weather sealed
Yesvs No (Canon EOS 650D)
Device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures due to any kind of weather.
19.Measurably more viewfinder coverage
100%vs 95% (Canon EOS 650D)
With 100% coverage you can compose the image correctly when you capture the photo. With less than full coverage you may have to crop your photos afterwards to get them looking perfect.
20.Explicitly less startup delay
0.13svs 0.15s (Canon EOS 650D)
It takes less time for the camera to turn on and take a first picture.
21.Significantly faster flash X-sync
0.004svs 0.005s (Canon EOS 650D)
Flash synchronization is defined as the firing of a photographic flash coinciding with the shutter admitting light to the image sensor. In general, faster flash sync speeds are better if the photographer needs to flash-fill subjects that are backlit and wants to avoid motion blur, or wants to increase depth of field by using a high aperture.
22.Double SD card slots
Camera holds 2 Sd cards allowing for memory overflow, or backing up.
