New Camera a57 or d5100?
Apr 19, 2012

Hi guys,

i'm in the market for my first SLR style camera and i have narrowed it down to the sony a57 and nikon d5100.

i mainly shoot landscapes with a bit of action thrown in..

i believe these cameras use the same sensor?

Anyway I have been leaning towards the nikon mostly because of its pedigree the 300mm kit lens max (good for surfing) and being a jpeg shooter i thought it may have the edge over the a57 jpegs..

However the sony has that rapid shoot rate and autofocus which could be very handy for sports action i havent entirely ruled it out

i was hoping some of you enthusiasts could give me your opinions and help me decide which way i'm going to go...


Nikon D5100 Sony SLT-A57
