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 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.


Plus follow your dreams and don't be a sheep that blindly follows the flock. My experience with a D5000 compared to an A57 is that the A57 is a far more versatile and satisfying camera to use. Your mileage may vary, and you might wish to be part of the sheeple and be content with the average. The average today has the advantage of being part of a big protective flock.

Just throwing a few 'out of the box' ideas into the same old arguments that are wheeled out time after time to justify the 'safe' path.
