I usually recommend away from sony as rentals are less common. Less people use it so its harder to borrow equip from friends. And flash equipment... there is very little high end support w/o adapters for flash equipment. Yes there is a lot of support but nothing compared to nikon & canon.

Sony makes some great equip but being "different" isn't always good when shooting. I like that the body has a built in IS for more entry level photos i think it is a great feature. But personally i prefer easier to obtain flash equipment & rentals.

And the nex is pretty great, ive used one and loved it. However fuji > nex 100% of the time. mmmmmmm
