I'm no where close to claiming I'm a photographer. But I'm addicted to photography. I've tansitioned from my first camera the nex-3 to a nex-5 to a nex-5r to a nex 6 and finally to an a6000. Every time I've upgraded I've been happy with the build quality. But the a6000 feels like a toy in comparison to the nex 6. It feels almost bloated... just my thoughts, definitely not a deal breaker. I'm sure a real photographer would prefer a lighter body that the the plastic offers. I just thought it would feel morr durable.

I have both of them in front of me. Both NEX-6 and A6000. A6000 is a better quality. The surface is smooth. The weight feels solid. No plastic feelings of the camera. It excellently matches with machining of my SEL1670Z. It is a good camera. Keeper.
