Canon T4i vs. Nikon D5100
Nov 9, 2012

First let me state that I realize that Nikon has a D5200 coming soon; I am considering the D5100 because of the great discounts right now.

I would love opinions on these two cameras.

If I went with the T4i/650D it would probably be with the 18-135 lens.

If going with the Nikon I have two options, 1) being the camera with kit lens (18-55) and the nicer 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 zoom and 2) being the camera with kit lens (18-55) and the cheaper Af-S Dx Vr 55-200mm F/4-5.6g Ed If lens.

Option 1 with the Nikon would be about the same price as the Canon where option 2 would be a cheaper option.

I admit that I am curious about whether the video on the D5200 will be a improvement, something that does matter to me.  From what I read, I believe the Canon will have the better video of the two, on the other hand the Nikon may have the edge in the still photo dept.
