As does the Nex-6.

The way I understand the A6000 reviews, there are two very huge limitations to the camera's AF:

  1. there is no Phase-AF in AF-S

Even on the Nex-6, PDAF is available in AF-S, which you can tell as it doesn't "hunt" like it does with CDAF.

  1. there is no selectable single point AF with AF-C (IMO this is a terrible limitation)

The A6000 has a lot more options than the Nex-6.  That thing on the video with all of the boxes that are constantly tracking is amazing.  You might be right here about the Nex-6 and older Nex cameras, but the A6000 is different; maybe we'll need to see final reviews before drawing too many conclusions.
