Conclusion: The Sony Alpha 6000 arrived on the scene as the hotly anticipated successor to the NEX-6 (and possibly the higher-end NEX-7, as well), and it boasts a raft of upgrades and refinements. Chief among them are a new 24-megapixel sensor and a much improved hybrid CDAF/PDAF autofocus system.
Pros: Amazing amount of quality for the price, Crisp JPEG images with few sharpening artifacts at low ISOs, Excellent high ISO performance (from RAW) for a 24MP APS-C sensor, Very good dynamic range, Very high resolution, Increased ISO range, Blazing fast Hybrid AF, 179 phase-detect points covering ~84...
Cons: Sluggish startup, Soft corners from the kit lens at wide angle, Kit lens produces strong barrel distortion and C.A. at wide angle in uncorrected images, Larger than average minimum macro area, Default chroma noise reduction is a little heavy-handed, Revised area-specific noise reduction can make ...
Summary: Sony a6000 is the fantastic and wonderful in its features and qualities. It is The quality and processor have been pulled up; the most important function on the a6000 is its modified Multiple AF program.
Conclusion: The Sony Alpha 6000 focuses instantly and shoots at 11.1fps. Its image quality matches its speed, making it our Editors' Choice.
Pros: Incredibly fast autofocus. 11.1fps burst shooting with tracking focus. Amazing high ISO image quality. Sharp OLED EVF. Tilting rear display. In-body flash and multi-function hot shoe. Wi-Fi with NFC. Downloadable camera apps. 1080p60 video capture.
Cons: Overly sensitive eye sensor. Slow start up. EVF lags in very dim light. Lacks analog mic input. Some apps must be purchased.
Summary: This degree of performance not only puts the A6000 ahead of most mirrorless cameras at any price point, but also beyond what you can expect from a DSLR in the same category. Nikon and Canon may also offer effective continuous AF, but you'll need to compose with their viewfinders alone, concentrate...

Cons: Laborious process to set single AF area position., No touchscreen. Screen only tilts, not fully articulated., No GPS tagging built-into Wifi app., Apps sometimes feel like reinstating features., No 3.5mm microphone jack., No leveling gauge., No miniature effect for movies., No silent shutter option.
Conclusion: All told the Sony A6000 is an echo of its earlier NEX-6 model, making it a sensible balance of small and light but also powerful and capable of producing great images. We love the built-in electronic viewfinder, tilt-angle LCD screen and the step forward in autofocus ability.
Pros: Keenly priced, built-in electronic viewfinder, tilt-angle LCD, great build quality, impressive high-res image quality, 11fps and AF-S an achievement at this price
Cons: Some autofocus accuracy slip-ups, battery life needs to be better, no touchscreen, JPEG processing a little harsh for higher ISO sensitivities
Summary: The A6000 is Sony’s new mid-range compact system camera, a 24.3MP E mount model that replaces the NEX-7 and slots underneath the full-frame A7 series. But its spec and capabilities put it into a bracket that doesn’t feel so much mid-range as just-a-little-bit-less-than-top-of-the-range (sorry).
Pros: Incredibly fast, accurate autofocus, Tiny, lightweight and sturdy, Big, clear electronic viewfinder, Impressive still and video quality
