All I can say is, "I feel like I'm cheating". It's that much better. That said, if you don't need killer AF, I think that the Canon and Nikon alternatives do a fantastic job. For someone just starting, then I'd say to start with Sony. If you've got 5-figures invested in Canon or Nikon, then you don't need to move, UNLESS super autofocus is required. Then it's a game changer.

Look at this eagle shot my Canon-friend, Mike Reardon, took with a Sony RX-10:

The one-inch sensor isn't the cat's meow in low light, or for large prints, but the AF system is pretty amazing. That's a $1700 system!!
