Not sure why this is being voted cold? Great camera and seems like a good price. Wish it was this curious when I bought it.
Hot, excellent camera. Recently bought as a gift, and performs like my Canon 600D.

Will actually perform better than your canon for IQ

​Are you being serious?
Great camera bought this from the Amazon Warehouse deal last week. Really happy with the image quality and features.

It's a superior quality sensor in the same APS-C format, IQ is better in Sony's crop cameras. It's not as simple as buying a new body and getting instantly superior images, of course- lenses, editing, understanding of composition of light etc are all large factors on how good images will be, but assuming your own skill isn't a limitation on your photography then you can theoretically leverage more out of a Sony crop camera in this price range than competing Canons.

but then the canon lenses are much cheaper for the equivalent quality so canon is really cheaper overall and more versatile with hotshoe/dials/viewfinder/general ergonomics, the sony smaller and potentially better iq with bigger spend

I agree, I've mentioned several times on recent camera deals here that Canon's biggest strength is their lineup of excellent affordable lenses. However the question was simply about whether the A5100 body will have better IQ performance than the Canon body, which is undeniably true.

well.. thats if the lens is equivalent, sony kit isn't that well respected (even though its nice and small) but haven't seen much bad about the canon one?
think though... either are going to take great pics

a5100L <- the L bit means lens included
Great deal. Had mine a couple of weeks now and its awesome.

Nice little camera and fits in your pocket (coat pocket that is).

DSLRs are sometimes better and have cheaper lens options but are a lot bigger. These little cameras are great for more casual shooting, although the A6000 is significantly better and has a viewfinder.

​The sensor is actually slightly bigger in the Sony than the Canon also.

D3300 has an optical viewfinder, better lens, better battery life, in camera panorama has a flash hot shoe, no AA filter and better egornomics. It is a lot bigger than the A5100 though.

I have the a6000 and it's the best digital camera that I have ever bought! Small, incredible quality and things like 11 fps and the ability to put almost any lens ever made on it with a 10 quid adapter is fabulous...
This was £274 two weeks ago - I know because I saw it on HUKD and bought it. EXCELLENT camera, and yes 16-50mm lens is included. Recommended!

That link gives it as £319.99 without any mention of cashback (which is mentioned for other models on the same site), in fact it says "was £419 now £319" - other than that, would have been a fantastic deal

Wow - You seem to have a few OCD spiders around your way !!oO

I've got a Nikon D800 and use this A5100 as my everyday camera when I'm out and about with the family, as people say it's pocket size
Considered this, but then thought it worth waiting for a Nikon P610 to come down for a decent price.
