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.

Both are great cameras.

I would prefer the A6000 of those two but that is me .

I prefer an EVF over OVF almost any day....at least it is better for MY needs and especially the Sony A7 EVF...A6000 EVF may not be as good but still good enough.

As for lenses that is a non issue for either even though the Nikon can not use all available Nikon auto focus lenses, the Sony can use native E and FE lenses (of which there are more than enough for most) but also later on you can add  adapter(s) and autofocus almost (if not all)  Canon EF lenses, Sony/Minolta AF lenses and even Contax G.
