    For A6000 owners/shooters what is your opion of the quality of the A6000? I handled one recently it felt plasticky. What do you like/ do not like about your camera?

    I think "feel" and "build quality" are really over rated unless you are going into some travel/backpack sort of scenario.

    I have had a LOT of cameras, but I have no issues with the a6000. It is a well executed, 1-wheel corner EVF tilty screen body. One of the best I've used. Some people want a touch screen. I could use it if it was there, but I'm not dying without it. The grip is good, the functions and menus are good, and it has enough programmable custom buttons for me.

    My biggest issue is lacking mid-level lenses. The 28/2 is my favorite lenses on it. I also use an manual 100mm 2.8 and an 8mm fisheye manual focus. For a strap, I use the Peak Design strap, and it's sized perfectly.

    I really have no complaints, and the price and output are spot on. Just could use some other compact, mid-quality AF lenses, but oh well. I find myself grabbing the a6000 more than the a7, FWIW.

    What do you take pictures of?

    edit: one tiny little niggle, and it's not huge at all. Where the grip and the on/off switch are located, I find sometimes I accidentally turn the camera on without realizing it. I've left it on overnight a few times, but it has a pretty effective sleep mode.

    I too am just fine with the "build quality." Over a year of ownership, 1000+ shots, and no scratches, dents or significant issues.
