Both are at par with high ISO (Canon with the sensor and Sony with the design). The deciding factor is the lens you can buy for each system (quality, availability and price). Sony A58 was manufactured to be all plastic (even the mount is plastic) to cut costs.

I had a Sony P&S and Canon P&S. The IQ of Canon was obviously better even if they used the same sensor. The processing and the lens made the difference.

How many mounts reported broken??

for some reason people assume plastic < metal but in many cases plastic is more durable and last longer than metal. There is no proof what so ever showing plastic mounts being unreliable especially on A58.

I don't think sony did that to cut costs (getting descent plastic mount manufactured just for A58 might actually cost more because metal once were already being bulk produced for other cameras.) I think they did it to cut the weight as much as possible, i think A58 is really light even lighter than my A7 i think (which has metal body parts).

Focus on what you have, not on what you don't.
