Personally, although I have a large Minolta and Sony film and digital collection, if you want a DSLR I would go Canon or Nikon, or at at a push Pentax.
Sony have just about abandoned their DSLR line in favour of their superb A7x range and a6000, a6300 etc.

So another simple way to look at it:-
For sports photography - Canon or Nikon SLR.
For all other photography - Sony CSC as above.

hi thanks. im just looking into amatuer photography. this has 2 lenses so would be useful. i doubt i will buy anymore but you never know. also might use for youtube clips.

any idea which models for canon or nikon. i've done some online search. Nikon D3300 crops up and also the canon 1200d for around 300. but with sony i get an extra lense.

Both are great cameras. Unfortunately you are possibly or likely to grow out of the cheap lenses supplied with the camera called kit lenses, pretty quickly if you start to take it more seriously. If you are shooting video, add on a decent microphone, grip, eyecup etc.

Unfortunately you could go in number of ways, buy a camera kit and be happy, of buy a camera kit and start upgrading when you hit the limitations of both cheap body and lenses.

Whichever way you go, avoid Sony SLT.

For more advice google the dynaxdigital forum.

Good luck. Whatever you do, enjoy it!

sony have a77-ii and a68 in the last year or 2, the lens system is also mature so no worries there
the situation is not as bad as your drama queening makes out at all

brilly sorry you don't know the market. Sony is declining massively in the DSLR style market. Sub 2% and declining compared to Canons 50%+ n its home market.

Other comments:-
Very few DSLR releases.
No high end pro models released in last few years.
Limited third party accessories and lenses compared to Canikon.
Largely unused by another other than a few new amateurs and a die hard bunch that includes me.


Sony is concentrating on mirror less cameras where it dominates.

I would suggest OP thinks about what pictures he/she is likely to take and heeds my advice above to avoid wasting money.

already pulled A mount out of New Zealand. If the E mount continues to do as well ad it is, expect Sony to ditch DSLR style cameras within 12 months.

and before we gt into a stupid argument DSLR, skt etc let's just call them Sony A mount cameras. Going the way of the Betamax. Go Sony E mount instead.

oooh sorry super expert you really know the market, all of what you said has precisely zero relevance to the OP
they may not even get new lenses etc, so this gives them a solid setup at a cheap price
pro releases? irrelevant to op
3rd party accessories and lenses? what does the op want thats not already there?
you bang on about emount... last aps-c emount lens release from sony? 3+ years ago
if you go emount then you make do with whats there or pay for fullframe lenses - again irrelevant to the op though ofc
a6300 - almost a grand, previous relevant releases? over 2 years old... so older than the new A mount cameras
thanks for your expert opinion on your forced idea of what the op needs though

op, not saying buy this - just saying dont listen to nonsense rants copied from others
