Re: Nikon or Sony

You almost never use a dSLR in live view. Sony has good sensors but the design cripples them quite much. The sensors are up to Nikon quality, some Nikon use Sony sensors, but because of SLT technology the light hitting the senor is only 70% of the one gathered by the lens their high ISO is at par with Canon sensors that are lagging behind for years.

Based on your question the experience with dSLR is zero so any dSLR will be way over your known IQ. If you are not requiring high ISO too much and like Sony handling you should buy this body (or the better A57). If you don't enjoy the camera you will use it seldom so the expenditure will not pay back in many good pictures.
