Default Canon 600D vs Nikon 5100: Price difference worth

hey guys,

I'm still undecided between these two cameras.
Some reviews claim the 5100 is better at picture taking while others claim it's value will run out quicker because of its limitations.
I've read a lot, seen comparisons and really can't make up my mind.
But now there's also another issue i've just discovered, prices.
Although the reviews claim the price range to be the same there's quite a difference in the store i'm looking to buy from:

Canon 600D 18-55mm + 55-250mm: costs 909
Nikon 5100 18-55 VR + 55-200 VR costs 818

So is the Canon worth the difference. Is the Nikon a better deal?
The built in body autofocus from Canon is attractive cause then i can try to fiddle markets for cheap/good/old lenses. But then the claimed better low light performance from the Nikon is important.

Help me please.

Hi theres not a lot between these cameras and depending on who you read is who gets the best right up. In the end its down to this there is 82 euros in the price now that may be the deciding factor for you. What I would say is forget the price which one do you like which is easier to hold and use. When you buya DSLR you buy into that system look whats available to you. In the long run 82 euro's isnt a lot of money if you make the wrong choice.
