The Tamron is a great lens, but I would say start with a kit as suggested above. For canon that would be the 18-55 and 55-250. That will give you 2 quality lenses you can start with. Then add the 50mm f1.8 for the low light stuff, and even a flash.

The t3 kit with the 18-55 and 55-250 is $650 through amazon. You could jump up to the t2i which is a better body, and get the same kit for $800. Then don't forget the nifty fifty at around $110.

I can't speak for nikon since I've never used it but they have bodies at similar price points that should give you very similar results.
