Anyone buy a Sony A6000 yet?
« on: Apr 28, 14, 15:55 »
Had my eye on this camera for a little while and now it's available locally. Just wondering what some of your thoughts are on it. Currently looking for something around this price range and the small size is a definite bonus as my new job has me travelling. I have read probably every review and it has my interest for sure.

If I bought it, I don't see myself buying a new lens for a couple months or longer. Not that I have a huge collection of Nikon lenses, but my other option was a D5300 or if I splurged a bit, D7100 body.

Just seeing if anyone has some hands on with the A6000 as Futureshop didn't have a demo for me to try out :)

Aha, of course, it's all Sony makes, right?

I wanted one just for the FD adapters so I could re-use my 50/1.4 like I did on my AE-1.

Yeah I splurged, thanks Taylor.
Will post some pictures when I get back and once I learn to use it properly. So far it's easy to use and the wifi is nifty. I think I'll enjoy it a lot.
