Thanks for the link!

I may go for the Sony A57, actually. Any thought on its IQ?

I have no experience with the Sony, but it does use the same sensor as the NEX-5 and D5100/D7000 - however, Nikon always has some secret sauce it uses in its imaging chain that gets just a little more out of the sensor than Sony does.  You probably wouldn't notice.  DPReview did a review on the A57 and gave it a Gold award.  Read it elsewhere on this site.  Remember that its not the camera body that makes a DSLR, its the lenses.  Sony's lenses are quite good.  Nikon's and Canon's are generally better.  But good third party lenses are available for all.
