Good summary of the three cameras. All definitely good cameras capable of taking good pictures. All are pretty advanced for a new shooter. You may wish to step back on level to the Nikon D5100, Canon 60D, Sony A57 or A65. This saves you a little money for lenses or a better tripod. I would recommend the Sony A77 with the 16-50mm f/2.8 kit lens as a good starting point if you want to stay with top of the line APS-C DSLRs. I would hold off on another lens as Sony should be announcing a 55-300mm sometime this fall, which might be a good companion lens. The biggest reason to go with Canon is the telephoto lens line up, it is much broader than Nikon or Sony. The biggest reason to go with the Sony is the live view, video, frames per second, and the articulated display. This is a really great LCD. Nikon has a little bigger lens selection, especially older lenses due to less changes in the lens mounts than Sony or Canon over the years, it also has the best low light capability, it is better than Canon or Sony but not by a huge amount.
