Default Suggestion on buying DSLR...

Well, this may not be a new questions, however just want to find out the best dslr for me... i am looking for a dslr which suits for my requirement of photography for wildlife, nature and people...

After good amount of research, i narrow down my choices to followings:

1. Nikon D7100
2. Nikon D5200
2. Canon EOS 7D
3. Canon EOS 700D (Rebel T5i)

Any thought ? Which will be better ? I know lenses are as much important as camera, however here my thought is to get good SLR, lenses will be purchased later...

Thanks in advance..

All great camera's- and although a couple of years old now,the 7D's still a cracker...

You're right to suggest the lenses are as important as the camera- and many might suggest more so... especially given your wildlife/nature/people shooting....

If I had to do it all over again knowing what I know now I would by a very inexpensive canon DSLR camera and spend about $2,000 on a 70-200 f2.8 IS lens.

hi heres my choice canon 7d you get a good deal on it 8 frames/sec lens 70-200 is a bit short for wildlife but good for closeups on people 10-400 is better for wildlife
