It depends on what system you are going to develop.

If you want to develop applications on Windows using C#, then of course you have to learn C#. Otherwise, Java might be a better choice.

Well i guess it depends on the technology u r interested. But doing both the technologies is not that hard as long as u can focus on the high level things where the concepts are more or less the same.
And better yet it will help you to use each other effectively cos u will know the benefits and merits as well as problems of each language and platform.

They are definitely related...very similar syntax and many similar concepts. C# was basically "created" by Microsoft after Sun said they couldn't make the changes they were trying to make to Java.

(ok, certainly an oversimplification of the history...but I believe that's more-or-less accurate)

MCAD is a I believe 3 test certification. You would have a a choice from XML WebServices, Windows Applications and ASP.NET web app development in either C# or VB.NET.

Then you would need 1 elective either SQL Server or Security.

The SCJP is just the beginning of SUN's Certs. I would say to compare apples to apples you would need to obtain the SCJP, SCJD, and maybe SCWCD or SCDJWS.

Then you would be comparing the two correctly.

There is alot about the underlying platform of windows you would need to understand as well for the MCAD. For the Java certs you would need to kow the Java/J2EE platform.

Good luck
