    Anyone have an a6000 along with an a7, as a complement camera.

    If so -- thoughts? Are the menus pretty much the same? Operation close to the same?

    I have an a7 and was thinking I could marry an a6000 to it. Would like to use that 28/2 in a more walk-around fashion. Only issue might be a6000 doesn't have a "silent" mode which I'd like for a walk-around.

    I have both cameras. They share the same menu system and operation is as close as possible if you accept ergonomic differences and the a6000 has less buttons. You have to dig in the menu more but that's it.

    Not sure why a6000 not having a silent mode is and issue since a7 doesn't have silent mode either.

    Because the a7 doesn't have a silent mode, I'd prefer another camera with silent mode. Can't afford the newest a7, though (I think it's the a7rii?)
