Sold my Sony A57 for a T5i with STM...did I make a good move?
11 months ago

A good move as in a worthy upgrade?  I sold my 5.5 month old a57 for $500 and picked up a T5i with 18-55STM, extra Canon battery and Canon case (the promo Canon is doing right now) for $200 more.

I was on the fence between T5i and D5200 but the touchscreen on the Canon really was a huge feature for me.  I know the hardware guts on the T5i isnt in the same league as the D5200, but I honestly felt the Canon felt noticably better in the hand and the STM was feature that appealled to me.

I sold my A57 because I just wasnt a big fan of the UI and I dont know what it is but there was something lacking on the camera.  It just wasnt all that fun to use (compared to other cams ive used).

So tell me, is this a worthy upgrade?
