How is the A7 vastly better with regards to legacy lenses? APS-C legacy lenses will be in lower res crop mode on the A7 but full sensor on the A6000.

Half frame legacy lenses are a tiny minority. Really, the lenses for the Olympus Pen F are the only ones you might find.

Yes, wide angle will be wider on A7 but telephoto will be more tele on A6000, so we'll call that a draw.

Yes, smaller pixels are definitely better for long tele lenses. Until the a6000 appeared, the NEX-7 was king for birds in flight.

Small pixels are also better for macro.

But generally, and particularly in low light, the A7 gives outstanding results.
