Light sucking mirror

Huge turn off esp for low light shooters
The SLT's are worst in class for this type of shooting.

The EVF v OVF debate is a thread on it's own. IMO the D5100 is not comparable to this Sony model price wise you're looking at the D7k granted a bit more but not hugely so. D5100 is under featured IMO so look higher up the range

Having tried the SLT's I dislike the EVF's with a passion. Yes they are big, but WYSIWYG is a myth the contrast is too high and shadows crush and highlights are blown in the VF but not in the shots. Not really as useful as some might expect
