Re: For Sony A58 and A65 Owners

The A65 is a very nice camera, essentially an A77 in most ways. It's a bit on the expensive side though compared to the D3200, but cheaper than the D5200 and offers a comparable feature set. The A58 doesn't have as nice a screen or VF, although the D3200 is awful too. It also gets the 16 MP sensor, which is a very solid chip and more manageable in terms of data (more photos on a card, less space on a computer and easier to edit). The Nikon will do a bit better at high ISO but the Sonys are basically more capable cameras in every way.

I had a D3100 briefly. I didn't find it to be an appealing camera. The tiny viewfinder really makes things uncomfortable.
