Nikon 5100 - best buy at sub £400 ?

I really like the Nex6 with its APS-C, EVF, hot shoe and perfect size. However it is £830 in the UK.
Currently I can get a new Nikon D5100 for £374.

Seems it would be foolish to save up and spend more than double the money on my first serious camera.

So my question is this - is there anything better than the Nikon 5100 available for less than £400 new in the UK

(I know about the D600 which very similar in DP rating and capability but is lsightly more expensive and not so good for videography)

Thanks for your input
