I very new to DSLR Photography. Now I'm in confusion that Sony alpha 58 or Cannon D600. both of them are nearly same cost. but I found that that for Sony there are less lens and accessories. but cannon have more lens and accessories are available.

I need camera that satisfy for a long period ( few Years )

Is sony alpha58 is pro than D600 in terms of Quality ? What are the pros and cons of Sony and Cannon.

There are plenty of camera review sites where you can find out so much about the camera and quality, these are usually a little bias towards Nikon/canon as these are the big players.

A quick Google came up with this...


Personally you need to make sure the camera has the features that you actually require, which I expect both of these do. The next thing I would tell you other than just buying based on image quality (These are both technically very good cameras and unless you are going for large prints will not notice a huge difference in image quality as they will massively depend on which lens you use) you need to go and handle the camera before making a choice. The button layout on the cameras is really important and some are just plain annoying with having to dive into menus all the time to access features you use on a regular basis.

Some cameras are heavy so lighter so you really need to handle the camera before coming to any decisions on what to buy.

Hope that helps/

    Note that the OP means the Canon 600D, not the Nikon D600 which is obviously a very different camera. – Philip Kendall Sep 19 '14 at 8:05
