Sony NEX controls are all menu based and time consuming to find. Good IQ and high ISO performance from the 16 mp sensors.
Sony alpha A58 is something no one mentions. A new 20mp sensor AF during video and EVF you can review images in direct sunlight. 8fps and an articulated LCD for creative perspectives. Under $500.
nikons 5k series is good even the old 5100 w/ the 16mp d7000 sensor. Cheap too.
The newer 52 and soon to be 5300 have very good resolutions but the 5200 has less ISO performance than the 5100.
The 5300 will have wifi and GPS built in. Good stuff. High ISO performance remains to be seen with this new model. It will be Nikons first new expeed 4 processor. So it's possible that the newer 5300 could have better high ISO performance due to better backside processing.
The Canon slrs are all good. The SL1 and T5i both can AF during video and touch screen pan focusing. Still a good sensor.
