Canon T3i/600D vs Nikon D5100; the deal breaker

Both dSLRs target beginner segment of the consumer market and offer very similar features. The only Deal Breaker I can find in favor of Canon's toy mentioned above is that it uses a proprietary Canon APS-C CMOS Sensor. On the other hand Nikon uses a Sony CMOS Sensor (shouldn't they be manufacturing their own sensors like canon).

However, it should be noted that Nikon D5100 boasts better low light performance owing to its higher ISO sensitivity. Whereas, some dSLR videographers prefer Canon T3i/600D over Nikon D5100 due to better manual control capabilities found on the former camera.
