Vogel's video preview also uses FE 55 so clearly a lens that will work with a6000 well. And it is indeed the 85mm equiv lens for portraiture (viking reported true focal length being 57mm probably rounded to 55mm).

It offers the same FOV on APSc that m43 users (that Thom thinks is doing a better job) will with Panasonic's $1600, 42mm f/1.2 and Fuji on APSc with 56/1.2. Just wait and see how people react if FE 85 is close to a grand as well (DOF and FOV that m43 and Fuji are trying to match with likely larger and heavier lenses, and equally and more expensive too).
