    Well I got the A6000 after hearing about how good it is. So I bought a MD 50 f/1.4 and MD 28 f/2.8 but am still waiting on the adapter.

    On a side note, I do have the alpha to NEX adapter and have tried the AF Minolta 50 f/1.7 and it seems to be a pretty good combo except you have to guess about the aperture.

    I still have my A99 though.

    Merry Christmas to you. I have both them lenses and they are very nice especially the 50 F1.4. I've not use them on crop only the A7 but they should be good on the A6000. Look forward to some photos.

    Merry Christmas to you Southy. The Tamron 24-70 f/2.8 on the A6000 makes for an interesting combo too.

    I also bought a 35-70 and 80-200 set of lenses that came in a cool case. I was really after the case. The lenses are the not so good Minolta AF set that has a built in lens cover that you flip a lever and it uncovers the glass. The 80-200 is fairly small and it looks great on there and it not that bad in IQ.

    Enjoy the new camera. The real advantage is when shooting AF.

    Yes the 18-55, the 16-50 and the 28 pancake are real fast auto focusing.
