Re: Sony a6000 Build Quality

I never had a NEX-6, my previous NEX was the C3.  I feel the complete opposite though, the a6000 feels like a huge step up for me in terms of build quality.  The buttons and dials feel much better, the rubberized grip feels so much more secure to hold, the finish on the exterior is so much nicer and more refined; everything just feels tighter and better put together than my previous NEX-C3.  I'm quite impressed with the build quality of mine.

I will say, this does not apply to the kit lens.  The kit lens feels cheap and sloppy but the portability is worth the trade off from the 18-55 I used to have.
