assistance with comparison of Nikon d5100 and Sony a65
Aug 18, 2012

I posted a similar comment in the Sony section. I am comparing two cameras for my first dslr purchase. At first I was going to buy the Nikon d5100. Seemed a capable camera for the price. Then, a friend pushed hard regarding the features of the a65 with the huge viewfinder which displays all the menus where you can make changes will using the viewfinder (which I find quite helpful). The 25mgs (yes, I do want to create some large pictures and will do a lot of cropping). Built in wireless and can act as a commander for external flash. The layout of the buttons seems smart and easy. And, the 10fps. And, it cost more!

But, my real concern is the final image quality and durability of the camera.

So, if there are any users knowledgeable regarding both cameras or wish to make sure I don't overlook certain features of the Nikon d5100 as I compare, please let me know.
