I am wanting to get into some beginner photography taking picture of cars at car meets, memories/adventures with the Partner and random stuff and the occasional video. My dad is a Canon man and had a few excess/kit lenses he doesn't use which i can have. 18mm-55mm f3.5-5.6 II and a 75mm-300mm f4-5.6 III I understand these are basic lenses and will most likely buy a 50mm lenses. A few friends have Nikons and recommend get a D5100 but this will be alot more expensive due to buying body and a lenses. Was reading thru http://snapsort.com/compare/Canon-600d-vs-Nikon-D5100 seem pretty similar only real difference is the larger Sensor Been doing some research, would a Canon 600D be a good choice?
