Summary: So far the camera itself has been great. The kit itself is pretty decent. The camera bag I received was okay but felt pretty flimsy and cheap compared to my Samsonite DSLR bag. The biggest problem was with the included memory card. My card was a Sony branded one, which according to Nikon's page for the D5100, is not on the tested and approved list. Of course I didn't think to check the card make before some shooting and that turned out to be a problem.
Summary: Love it!!! It was everything I was expecting and more! The camera is amazing! Just what I was looking for! It has several options and is a great camera. I looked at several before making a decision and I'm very happy with my purchase!

Summary: Both the Canon t5i and the Nikon D5100 are very good and comparable cameras. Ten years ago cameras like these would have cost several THOUSANDS of dollars, so regardless of what anyone tells you, these cameras are both good and both offer what would have been professional quality and features just a few years back. We also have a D3100 and a very awesome D7100. This is the reason we stay with Nikon...
