First DSLR - Nikon D5100 vs. Canon EOS 600D
May 1, 2012

I am looking to purchase my first DSLR (entry range) to take up photography as a hobby and have zeroed in on the Nikon D5100 and Canon EOS 600D based on my initial budget. Appreciate any help on -

  • Are there any obvious pros/cons for a beginner between these two?

  • Over time as I look to purchase more lenses etc is there any obvious difference between the "system" costs for these two? Are the lense more/less costly in general for one?

  • To start, if I were to purchse 2 lenses, which ones would be most useful? Is it worthwhile going for a kit 18-55mm lens or rather purchase some different ones?

I am mostly interested in landscapes/architecture. Video is not a priority.


Canon EOS 600D (EOS Rebel T3i / EOS Kiss X5) Nikon D5100
