Hey guys,

I'm pretty set on getting an A6000, and from what I understand mirror less has pretty much caught up with DSLRs. Especially with the AF of the A6000, wouldn't an A6000 be just as good as a D5300? Is there any reason why I should prefer a D5300 over it? It's just that I still see so many people buy t5i's and D5300s and entry level APS-C DSLRs.

Several reasons to pick D5300 over A6000. Though it is important to realise that they may not all apply to every person.

1, D5300 has access to a lot more first party native lenses, often at better prices. For example 50/1.8G, 85/1.8G, 35/1.8G.

2, D5300 has access to more high quality third party native mount lenses. for example Sigma 18-35/1.8, Tokina 11-16/2.8. These lenses do not have E-mount version.

3, D5300 has an OVF, zero lag and infinite refresh rate, cost no power to run. OVF is stil a lot better than EVF for tracking. to get the same zero lag tracking with A6000, you need a red dot sight mounted on the hotshoe.
