Canon Rebel T5 vs T5i

I'm completely ignorant when it comes to photography but mamma is a about to spring for a new camera and I thought I would throw this past you folks for any thoughts, comments and/or suggestions.

She is currently looking at the Rebel T5 that comes with two lenses (18-55 mm and 75-300 mm) as well as the Rebel T5i with one lense (18-55mm). I know that's not much to go off of but help a guy out, please! She is currently using an ancient digital Rebel but wants to upgrade. I'll pass any info along to her. Thanks!

Well, the T5i has a better processor, a much wider ISO range, and a better LCD screen that sports a much higher resolution and is articulating (rather than fixed).

Out of those two, I would go with the T5i hands down. If money is the main concern, opt for the cheaper T5. If it's about the aforementioned features (...), get the T5i.

Thanks Reality. I guess I should have slowed down and asked whether the T5i's feature set was worth the extra $200. Regardless of the extra lens I think she should go with the better body and concentrate on learning to use the thing. She's taking a digital photography class in the spring and wigging out on me!
