What research have you done so far? What are your priorities? How do you feel about OVF vs. EVF? Have you held them and compared ergonomics? Do you need fast AF in live view? Do you need fast AF in video? Do you need fast FPS? Do you need in-built VR? etc etc etc.
Please show us that you have done at least some basic research before just anyhow posting here.
But, you're comparing an entry-level camera (D5100) to a feature-rich enthusiast model. Not exactly apples to apples.
Actually I find it pretty funny that many people had been asking which is better and which is not... rather than asking, is he/she a better photographer or not. Sorry for being too blunt... but it is just that I have seen way too many of this thread.
The basic thing here is not just online reviews... which many had already been making. But also the same questions that TS should ask himself,
1) Ergonomic of the camera
And there... is no which camera is better... all do what they are designed to do... it is up to the photographer to define what he/she wanted. And after that... it is up to the photographer to make a picture works.
I just brought my A65 last month before Christmas.
That day I brought a65 I was running few shop to try, test and comparing.
In the end I chose a65, because of the staff at the shop is very nice:bsmilie:
I'm not sure what you like.
most of the forum say that a65 also consider beginner camera
Nikon d5100 is lighter then a65, ( if plus lens, i think around 100g not big different )
D5100 is cheaper then a65.
24MP in ASP-C is too noisy.
Shutter sound nicer.
The reason I chose a65 because of the reason below:
1.I has a NEX 5 （ My sister is the owner )
2.I can go the officer website to see the price. ( but no money buy G len :bigeyes: )
3.The hand grab for a65 I very like.
4.I not sure I know how to use OVF or not.
5.Manual focus is more easy.
6.My sister like sony ( she pay half of the price ）
