Re: I just picked up my Sony A6000 - In stock everywhere?

A6000 bodies have been out for a week or more in UK but with kit lens a later release so only got mine today:

First impresssions; very similar to Nex 6 bit more metal rather than plastic but really little difference is it 1 extra button.  I like having a specified menu button.

New menues I like ..so far easeier to navigate.

Focus is amazing! On continuos focus moving camera around it seemed like it was never out of focus , but I need more time with it.

EVF looks good to me.

I can't comment on image quality yet, but not expecting any real improvment on the Nex 6 to be honest but I really wanted fast focus.  I was trying to get some moire in movies and could only get a very little -it was a problem sometimes on the Nex 6 so hopefully an improvment but need more time to test.

Charger is same, no plastic hot shoe protector just a sticker saying wifi over it!

Movie button still in perfect place -unless you actually want to press it.

I think I will like this camera but unless you really need that speed, the 6 is cheaper and not exactly slow!
