Question 2: do cheap aftermarket batteries work with it? I've used cheap batteries on the A33 and A57 in the past, with mixed results, but it did the trick! But I'm seeing that some batteries don't work with the NEX-7 specifically. Even the more sophisticated Upstart battery says it can't be used with NEX-7. My guess is that this is the same with the A6000.

Mine came empty so I did use my cheap off brand battery and it looks to be working just fine. Can't really say anything about number of shots yet but seemed a little worse compared to my nex 6. Going out in a few to bike around and see if something stands out for a photograph, will take my second aftermarket battery with me to test that one out too.
