Okay, I just got my anniversary/Christmas/birthday/Valentine's Day present. Before I start playing with it though, I want to run it by the DT photgraphers. I got a Nikon D5100, with a couple of lenses (AF-S DX Nikkor 17-55mm f/3.5-5.6 and Nikkor AF-S Zoom 55-200mm f/4-5.6). I had the choice between that, or a Canon Eos Rebel T3 with its kit lenses. Now, I'm kind of second guessing myself, though. Keeping in mind that I'm going from using a fully manual film SLR to a DSLR with more bells and whistles than I currently know what to do with, do you think I would have been fine with either of them? Or does the slightly higher megapixel count and the nifty little flip screen on the Nikon make it a better deal?
I'm sure I'd have fun with either camera, but the Nikon was about $100 more than the Canon.
