Mr Ichiro Kitao, I support the call to upgrade the FZ50.
I will not only buy one but two no questions asked...

ALL cameras slow down in low light conditions and a6000 won't be an exception. Popular Photography, for example, posts lab results measuring AF speed under varying light conditions. Their fastest measured AF for mainstream and pro DSLRs is on Sony a77 with 0.24s (a99 is next at 0.27s) at 12EV which goes down to 0.98s (IIRC) at 0 EV.

That being said, there are two videos available (one posted above by Henry and another is a review by DanK) which demonstrate that the a6000 manages to maintain good speed indoors as well (note the garage shot in DanK review).

Dank Reviews didn't shoot anything in a garage, they panned the camera to show how the focus points reacted to different objects but nothing was shot. Not only can't you hear the shutter, the LCD would go jerky if actually shooting continuously.

The only continuous shooting shown was a parrot in daylight (looks overcast) and the same parrot in a bright, white corner. The latter clearly shows the liveview screen and how it is not really dark with the camera settings (base ISO, realtively high shutter speeds).

It is meant to demonstrate how quickly the AF-C does its job and points it selects. No need to be bitter about it. I wish more reviews were like that.

That's not the same.

I have old cameras which can also "follow" a subject with neat cursors and squares (depends on the manufacturers). Reality of actually shooting the same subject in focus is different.
