When I first bought my Sony a580 I did it because of the colors, the shots I took with that camera came out with very vivid and similar colors.
What I noticed the most between these two cameras was: that the Sony a580 projected a better quality of colors while the Nikon D7100 had better focus.
I still have to get used to this new layout, but here are a few cons and pros about the Nikon D7100 compared to my Sony a580.
- The screen that tells you the aperture, ISO and speed does not have a light of its own, so you can't see those numbers unless you select the option to use the screen.
- I've noticed that sometimes it takes a long time to go from picture to picture.
- It's lightweight.
- The lens I bought has a bigger capacity (18-105mm) and is smaller and lighter.
- The vast amount of lenses you can buy.
- The focus capacity.
Overall I think that both cameras have their pros and cons, and they are both good. It just takes a little bit of getting used to and knowing you camera's peeks.
