Jay is looking for an entry level DSLR. Should he get the Canon T5i, the Canon SL1 or the Nikon D3300? Leo says that they are comparable as good entry level DSLRs. The key here is the glass, not so much the body. He's really buying a system, more than just a camera. He will always upgrade the body and keep the lenses.
Leo also recommends looking into a mirrorless camera. They're smaller and lighter, and the optical quality is just as good. But between those two, the Nikon D3300 is the better of the two because of the Nikon glass.
