    Buy.com look like they are selling the Rebel T4i along with 4 lenses and a bunch of other stuff for $999. Seems like a great. How does this camera compare to Nikon D5100? Which is better?

    Based solely on independent testing lab image sensor performance results, the D5100 is a step above the T4i - DxOMark - Compare cameras side by side

    On a feature-to-feature comparison the T4i actually competes with the Nikon D7000, not the D5100. The D7000 and D5100 use the same image sensor.

    Is Video feature important? It seems like the T4i is better in that area when compared with D5100.

    I did not see the 4 lens kit for $999, but I saw the 20pc kit for $791. Here is the link.

    The T4i is a better all-purpose camera, while the Nikon 5100 is better for portraits.

    4 lenses? Hoping those lenses are not the screw-on type.

    You didn't post a link. In post #1 you only posted a web site name - Buy.com.
