Sony A57 OR Nikon D5100?
Jul 13, 2012

Been confused, VERY confused lately with both choices of the D5100 and the A57.
Here goes the Dilemma,
They BOTH have the same of each:

  • sensor size

  • price range (in my location at least)

  • resolution

  • dimensions/weight

then there are the differences:

  • The Sony is newer than the Nikon

  • The Sony has the translucent mirror technology (thus 12fps, shooting while rec, etc..)

  • Nikon has much more amount of history and user satsifaction

  • Nikon, alongside with Canon, are pillars to the world of photography

  • etc etc..

Help? Anyone?
