60d has a mirror lockup. 5100 has shutter delay. In live view, 5100 does not adjust scene brightness in manual mode. I bought a canon aps-c knowing that i would eventually get a 5d2. Just consider what features you need and what you want to end up with.

Do you have any other cameras or lenses that might make this part of a system? If you already have a Nikon lens, for example, the 5100 might be better.

If you are a beginner-to-intermediate photographer, then it really, seriously doesn't matter - both are excellent cameras and part of much larger systems that you can grow into. I'd buy the Canon as that's what I use, but I handled a 5100 over the weekend and it's a great little camera.

I would compare the lenses line up relative to your needs to decide.

Cheers,
