  Farrah,
Must be a camera buying spree going on. There's another one almost identical to yours today and two others within the past couple weeks. See the answers to two similar ones:

Bottom line:
There is no "better" in general. It's which one is better for you personally. This is a decision you have to make for yourself based on what you want to do with the camera, how well it will help fulfill that, how it feels in your hands in operation, and whether its controls feel natural or cumbersome to you. Either one is fully capable of "general" photography.
