"the Sony NEX-6, a very well-regarded CSC that managed to stay the course for a good four years". You reviewed it 1.5 years ago (and gave it 7/10).
Great review - highly tempted indeed.
One of many cameras that is flooding with a reduction sensor.And as well as the tiny 8mm sensor cameras, but Sony called it "One Inch Sensor" to fool many of us.
AF speed on Sony 70-200/2.8G II and 70-400/5.6 are very slow.
Just to add something very important if you are serious into becoming a better photographer...Sony tethered shooting software is made for children to use & the NFC is a joke.NO LIVE-VIEW tethered to a computer. Only children like Sony's apps on phone but not made for serious photographers.
Canon & Nikon children cameras have live-view tethered to computer.
The price of the Sony ilce-6000 with a Carl Zeiss T* 16-70mm F4 zoom (as tested) is somewhere north of £1,200.
The Zeiss lens is a better performer than the standard 16-50 kit lens, which costs around £600 with the ilce-6000 body.
Review could be clearer on pricing.
The Sony A5100 has same processor, same sensor and only released months apart and yet the CHEAPER A5100 gets the X AVCS ! codec - for those that don't know , that's the codec that records at almost twice the bit rate of AVCHD the much criticised video codec. I wish I hadn't bought my A6000 as constant requests from purchasers for a firmware update have not resulted in any progress so far. This is not a simple matter of progress the cameras are the same in the key hardware areas. It is even worse when you see the excellent Lumix LX100 for 4k ! for about the same price
