We bought a Nikon D5100 ($429) and a Canon T3i ($437) with the 18-55 kit lens for Xmas. Using both, I like some things about the Nikon (flash shots still allow the background to be bright) but the Canon takes some really good "bright colored" photos that seem to make the colors pop more and are incredibly crisp. It's extremely hard to choose which one I want to keep, and wondering if I overlooked any thing in that price range as well. We're not using the Camera for a video camera so the Canon's strength there doesn't really factor in.

Which would you choose? The D5100, T3i, or X? For similar money of course.

D5100 in an heartbeat.

Especially when you need the dynamic range like in sunsets of landscapes.
