I personally prefer using the Canon of the two (have used both) due to its layout (a personal thing I guess....)- though the sensor in the D5100 does offer more headroom in noise/DR- though curiously I always found the Canon's exposure/metering more accurate..!
What I would suggest however is that the kit lens on both hold the camera's back considerably...
The Nikon kit lens is not exactly sharp and focus speeds are not swift- though CA isn't an issue due to Nikon's processor.
The Canon kit lens focuses faster and I think a tad sharper,but CA is a big problem...

Bottom line,both good camera's- but I'd seriously consider other lenses...
