My A6000 arrived at the local camera store on Thursday. It's an upgrade from my 5n, so I had all my lenses with me, and could put a charged battery in the camera to test it out before leaving the store. I also took it to a local pool hall this evening for some low light shooting. So here are a few quick initial impressions... Auto Focus In the good light of the store, the PDAF is very fast. At the pool hall under low light, the camera was forced to switch to CDAF and things slow down quite a bit. It's no worse than the 5n, and may be slightly faster, but the hunting is obvious. Combine that with the continuous AF mode of the A6000, and you end up with the lens constantly breathing. If you find yourself in low light with the A6000, I recommend not using AF-C mode. Update: I had not updated the firmware on any of my lenses. I tried to do it with the 5n long before I ordered the A6000, but the 5n was not able to perform the update since it could only be done on a camera that had PDAF. My SEL2418CZ when purchased was already at the latest firmware. But the SEL50F18 that I used at the pool hall was not. So I do not know if the 50mm could have used PDAF at the pool hall. We only go once a month, so it will be a while before I can test it out. Side gripe: Sony's web site does not make it easy to find the firmware updates. I though they would be with the camera, and the A6000 doesn't have it's own support page yet. I happened to find the SEL50F18 this evening just by searching for the model number, because it was not obvious that for lenses you should go through the "Camcorder & Camera Accessories" table to get to lenses. So... The SEL2418CZ was up to date, and that's why it worked great in the camera store when I picked up the A6000. I had also tried my SEL55210, which wasn't updated for PDAF, so no wonder it had trouble tracking. Retests are definitely in order all around. Updated the SEL1855, SEL55210, and SEL50F18 - So now I'm good to go. The Sigma lenses are out of luck as far as I know. Viewfinder I keep hearing that the EVF is a downgrade (Lower resolution). But I find it just as good, if not better than the external EVF I use on the 5n. I'm a right-eyed shooter, so the side placement for me is great. Left-eyed shooters (like my daughter) will not be happy. I love the EVF and absolutely hate the "dirty diaper" holding of the camera when using the rear screen. The rear screen does come in handy from time to time, but I much prefer using the EVF. Touch Screen (Or lack, thereof) I have one on the 5n. But you know what? I turned it off the first week I owned it because I was always accidentally hitting it. So I don't miss having one on the A6000 one little bit. If that kept the cost down and I paid less because of it, them I am all for it. On a side note, I managed to get my smart phone connected to the camera, and found I could use the smart phone interface to set a focus point. I foresee the possibility of of using the camera/smartphone combination set up to monitor the bird feeder outside my window. By watching the screen on my smart phone, I would not be in the window to scare the birds. I could change the focus point if needed, and get the shot. Frame Burst Rate (11 FPS) Pretty damn awesome. Thought I had a problem when the camera was only shooting 3-4 frames per second at the pool hall. Thought it was because I had switched to RAW+JPG mode. Turns out, I was shooting at 1/13th or 1/15th shutter speeds, and you're not going to be able to shoot 11 FPS at those speeds. A switch to auto ISO, or just manually turning up the ISO, and I was good to go. SD card location It's crammed in there pretty tight against near the door hinge, which indeed can make it difficult to remove the card. I don't have thick fingers, just long fingers - So I'm okay with it, but I can understand why some people have had complaints. With a 32Gb card, I won't have to remove it often, and can leave the card in to transfer files to the computer (Or just use WiFi?). Not something I'm particularly worried about. Customization I've been able to find things in the menus to change settings without too much difficulty. The only thing I'm struggling to understand is how the custom settings for the three memory recall slot are set up. The manual that comes with the camera is very basic and doesn't cover anything in depth. I found a "Help Guide" online, which went into a little more detail, but the custom Memory Recall settings still weren't clear. Tri-Navi versus the A6000 mode dial Honestly, I can't see the need for the mode dial. I'd have rather it been a third dial like the NEX-7. I have been fine with going through the menus on the 5n to change modes. But if you're a shooter that changes modes often, I can see the advantage of having a separate mode dial. Too bad they couldn't leave the stacked dials from the NEX6 and still add the extra dial. I haven't yet delved deeply into customizations yet, so don't know if I really would need that third dial or not. I think that about covers it for now. Pictures and more thoughts to come.
