Hey guys,

I'm pretty set on getting an A6000, and from what I understand mirror less has pretty much caught up with DSLRs. Especially with the AF of the A6000, wouldn't an A6000 be just as good as a D5300? Is there any reason why I should prefer a D5300 over it? It's just that I still see so many people buy t5i's and D5300s and entry level APS-C DSLRs.

You can do it all with a DSLR.  Its difficult to do that with N A6000, particularly, as others have pointed out, at the long end.

Check out the Panasonic FZ200.  It's an awesome camera. You can get cameras with longer lenses. Getting good pictures out of them can be a chore, though.  You might not need another camera with the FZ200.

Rhe thing about an A6000 is you'll be able to take photos early and late in the day in low light, and those can be great times to make photos. The 18-200mm or 55-210mm can be great  lenses if you are creative with them with photos that include the environment. And you'll be close to animals at times., too.
