Re: a57 v d5100 for first DSLR

You can believe those results and that's fine. I also believe the results I'm seeing else, like right here on DP, where the A57 isn't as far behind as you suggest. In fact, in some places, I see the A57 produce better results. Sensor same schmame. There are other factors, like revisions, voltages, and noise reduction, who knows. Just because it "takes like away" does not mean it is that much worse. Evidence shows that that isn't the case, at least, no to the extent as you insist that other must believe.

End of day, I think that people are perfectly capable of running the comparisons here on DP, and then select different settings, choose a range. I'm seeing that, yes, in some place, the Nikon is less noisy. but I'm also seeing that the A57 will do a littlle better in some other image areas. See it's not simply cut and dry. Also, I'm not seeing anywhere where the A57 produces noise and the Nikon does not at any same setting.

It seems it's pretty clear that one should not pick the camera purely for low light performance. The two simply aren't as far apart as what you insist others have to believe.

And that brings us back to all those features that the Nikon does not have. How about that.
