Nikon D5300 vs Canon SL2

I've decided to buy my first camera for PHOTOGRAPHY and can NOT decide between the two DSLR's. I have enough for SL2 and the D5300 but cannot decide wich is best for photography. Wich would you recommend?

Both are good cameras, but you'll get better information in dedicated Nikon and Canon forums. If you're looking for opinions on specific aspects of Pentax cameras, we can help

You want a Pentax K-1.

Best digital camera around these parts.

You want to buy a Nikon or a Canon, so you register on a Pentax forum to ask which you should buy.
There are two questions to be answered here:
1. Which is better; Canon or Nikon?
2. Why are you trolling us?

You could try Nikon Forums - Community Home.

Alternatively, you may consider the Pentax K-1II as others have pointed out. I bought my first Pentax in Cape Town in 1988 and have never looked back.
