Check out the review A6300. Probably the best Entry Level DSLR in 1k price range.
Added - why i still like Canon to start. It has an amazing touch screen, which Sony unfortunately lacks.
When you start DSLR, I like it to make it easy as possible so people don't get discouraged. Sometimes too many features, just confuses people and turns them off to learning DSLR.
