Look at M43 or Fuji.

I think Sony has enough quality lens' at this point and I won't need the huge array of M43 lens' especially when a lot of them overlap. I'm no photography expert so I won't be able to tell the difference between the quality of images that come out from Fuji lens vs. Sony lens and thus can't justify the price difference. Also, for me as a beginner, Fuji may be a bit harder to learn for me than the A6000 due to the Fuji cameras being marketed more towards an enthusiast.

Also think about the ability to adapt lenses with shorter registrations than Nikon or Canon EOS like Leica M, Zeiss ZM and Canon FD as well as Nikon and Canon. If you're a legacy lens fan like I am, the D5300 won't be able to do as much although Nikon has an extensive number of classic Nikkors that are nice to use.
