Buddy at work wants to get camera for wife. Sony a37,t3i,d5100

I told him I would go for a Nikon or Canon over the Sony because:

Electronic Viewfinders just aren't great in high contrasty situations (shooting with sun in background etc)

Sony's lens selection is both more expensive and of less quality

He still like the Sony for it's faster fps and lower price.

Am I missing something. For me personally, a crappier lens selection and evf is enough to dissuade me.

Input would be great. Thanks!
