The Sony A68 A-mount camera features Sony’s unique 4D FOCUS system that delivers extraordinary AF performance under any shooting conditions, even in lighting as low as EV-2. And it has 79 autofocus detection points including 15 cross points and a dedicated F2.8 AF sensor point for dimly-lit scenes.

The Nikon D5500 ($696.95 at Amazon, B&H, Adorama) provides a 24.2MP DX-format sensor with no optical low pass filter. It features a touch screen, which is a fully articulated 3.2-inch 1.37M-dot affair, as in the D5300.
