Funny, the least-advertised feature is the one I'm in love with most...

That little footnote about how the fastest AF test was achieved, where it mentions that "pre-AF was off'...

There it is...something I've prayed for since the very first NEX...I'd almost consider buying the A600 JUST for that feature!  I have hated pre-focus since moment one, still hate it to this day...if the A6000 finally lets this be turned off, I want it for that alone.

I must say, the AF looks good for tracking at least early on...and I love the MR setting on the mode dial, plus the elimination of the NEX menus...all excellent selling points for me.

And MFNR seems to be built in?  It mentions the ISO range as 100-25600, but 51,200 with MFNR on...unless they're just letting you know of the expanded range when you download the app.

I still prefer the thinner, smaller NEX-5N body myself, but since I always shoot with the EVF on mine, I'm wondering if I could live with the larger bodystyle and built in EVF just to get at some of the improvements that to me are really really tempting.

Especially MR, return of the 4-way jog dial's custom settings, and pre-AF off!
