I have spent many hours on the subject.

Funny how some camera owners spend so much time dreaming of a camera that may fix all issues with the one they currently own. So many got burned by the NEX focusing and better sensor claims.

I'd rather stick with the camera that is available now, that is proven and that so many named "Camera of the Year". Plus we already know it has IBIS and better (and smaller) lenses.

What NEX focusing issues? I own a NEX-5R with hybrid CDAF-PDAF autofocus. It's ability to track and focus and fire at up to 10 fps is amazing, especially in "sports mode." The shame of it is that some owners of the 5R and 6 have never really learned how to use their cameras effectively.

Like the Nikon 1 which I also own, the PDAF function stops working in low light, causing reliance upon CDAF. M43 has a natural advantage here because of it's smaller size.

We are waiting for the A6000 to hit the streets to check out it's low light performance.
