Is 5100 a good option right now?

Hello Nikonites,

Please give me your insight on the D5100 as a first DSLR. Is it still worth it in 2014? Why should I choose this model over the similarly priced Sony A58? I have zero first hand experience with DSLRs and the closest digital camera I have ever operated is a Nokia N8. However, I know how to operate a vintage manual film SLR (Zenit-E). I want to get into photography and not have to suffer from the limited functionality of camera phones or point&shoot cameras.

Thanks in advance.

Nikon D5100 Sony SLT-A58
