The NEX 7 also looks just a little better over all then the D7100 at Imaging resource too.

Don't take that link as the final word. DXO rates the D7100 better than the NEX-7 in color depth, dynamic range and low light ISO performance. The D5300 also rates better than the NEX-7 in dynamic range and low ISO, falling just slightly behind in color depth.

The D7100, D5300 and NEX-7 are so close that it would be splitting hairs to differentiate between them in image quality.

That's really the point I was hoping someone would (eventually) get too.  And the same will be true with the A6000 vs any of the above listed cameras.  Looking at images on a 4K TV or on a very large print it would be hard for many to tell which image came from either of those cameras.

For the last several years there really hasn't been an Interchangeable Lens Camera that would rate anything less than very good.  Even the Nikon 1 series can take very nice photos.

Other factors as discussed in this thread would be the distinguishing characteristics.

The most important thing is to find out more from the OP what his needs are before recommending something as the end all be all. (I'm guilty too, I didn't do it either.) There's a lot of good options.  Maybe something from Pentax might work better, or M43, or maybe he needs a 6D + 24-70/4 IS.  The fact is, we really did not get enough information from him to just make a some blanket statements.  Yes Canon & Nikon have the most lens and accessory options, maybe even more than everyone else combined, but that doesn't mean they're the best in every situation.  There are many great solutions from every manufacturer that can meet a wide variety of different needs.
