Canon 1100d or 1200 or Nikon d3300

I am vry new to DSLR world and want to buy a new DSLR but its more confusing than i thought.

Right now I am confused between Canon 1100d (T3) and Canon 1200d (T5).
I can currently buy Canon 1100d with EF-S 18-55mm ISII Lens Kit for Rs 18000 (299 $) &
Canon 1100d with EF-S 18-55mm ISII + 55-250mm ISII Lens Kit for Rs 23900 (399 $) &
Canon 1200d with EF-S 18-55mm ISII Lens Kit for Rs 22900 (380 $)

Now should I go for newer camera with smaller lens or old camera with 2 lens. I have checked on many websites that 1200d is not much of an upgrade from 1100d and there's not much diffrence between the two. 
Which one should I buy between the 3 options.

One more confusion is that shall a much more expensive Nikon D3300 which is supposed to be much better than Canon's 1200d but its most expensive of the lot i.e. Rs 29400 (490 $).

Which one will be best for me as I am just a beginner to Photography world.

Please Help.

Right on the top, you know this is a Canon forum. So most of us are not going to reccommend any brand-N.  Not that there is anything wrong with them but we chose Canon.  Nikon has never come out with anything that caused me to want to switch to them.  I have two Nikon F bodies from long, long ago.  My Canon F1n is way better and I never looked back.  Besides Nikon has flakey lenses, to boot.


Most of the time I would advise you get the T5i but if you are comparing it to a T3i with two lenses, I would go for the T3i.

Most of the time the top-of-the-line camera will stay current longer than the lesser ones.

EOS 1DX and 1D Mk IV and several lenses!
