    Hi , I will soon be purchasing one of the above, any opinions on which one I should get would be really appreciated.
    Was thinking of getting a nifty fifty if I go for the canon or a 35mm 1.8 if I go for the nikon.

    Both Canon and Nikon make fine kit and there is little to choose between them. The choice comes down to price (especially of any extra lenses or flashes you want) and their ergonomics. They have different button layouts etc, so I suggest you have a play with both and see which you prefer. Otherwise is there a feature that sets one camera apart from the other for you?

    Nikon doesn't have Magic Lantern so for me was an easy choice. :)

    I'm a canon fan personally, but I have very little experience of using Nikon. Whenever I have I've been confused as hell :lol:

    Google for canon 600D vs nikon 5100. There's bound to be a comparison review somewhere out there :)

    Thanks for the replies. That comparison is helpful. I have read various reviews on both but alot of it goes straight over my head. They seem to be fairly similar spec wise and was just hoping someone on here might have first hand experience with one.

    I have a 550D, which is very similar to the 600D, and I like it a lot. Very easy to use :) Again, I have very limited use of Nikons so can't really be helpful there!

    I've got 600d and love it. 50mm 1.4 lens is brilliant.

    Personally i use a Nikon but that is simply because I could only afford a budget DSLR and preferred the feel and layout of the Nikon D3100 over the canon 1100D. Honestly like others have said they will both take great photos it more comes down to preference and ergonomics.
