Re: Sony provides so much more!

Yes, we know - I can trump those with my A77.

What we don't know is whether any of those are relevant to the OP's needs/wants.

Similarly on your side I will argue that we don't know whether the availabilty of exotic lenses is of any interest to the OP or not - I suspect not as only a tiny minority* of photographers need them but imo if you do then you choose the lens first & the system based on that. If he doesn't then the Alpha system is more than good enough both in terms of quantity & quality.

* e.g. Nikon generally produces (not necessarily sells) around 5000 PC lenses  of a length/design over many years versus annual DSLR production of over 4 million. That's probably something like .03% or less as a sales ratio.
