I walked into the camera store a few hours ago to pick up a 16-70 for my NEX-5t and there on the shelf was an A6000. I told myself I wouldn't do this but after playing around with the A6000 I had to walk away before making a rash decision. Now I'm stuck. Do I get the lens or the camera. I already have the 20/2.8 and the 35/1.8 so I could theoretically just get the Sigma 60/2.8 with the A6000 and call it a day, but some of the images I see online that are coming from the 16-70 just blow me away. Decisions decisions.

Would you like an EVF?

Do you need the extra resolution and faster AF system with tracking?

Those are 2 questions you need to ask yourself and if the answer is yes, then go for the a6000. You can sell your 5t later to help reduce the cost of the 16-70 Zeiss.

I have an EVF, I use the external one with my 5R. What I would miss is the articulation

(Don't know why I said 5T above, I own the 5R.
