Using NEX-5, concerned about feel of a6000
May 13, 2014

I am still using the original NEX-5 14mp and thinking of upgrading, mainly because:

1) Realize I need an EVF

2) Slow AF

I've been drawn to the NEX 6 due to its EVF, but it seems the AF is not THAT much faster than what I am currently using. Then the a6000 came out and I got excited due to the VERY fast AF and its basically a NEX 6.  I've never handled either camera by the way.  Then I read some threads here complaining about how a6000 feels weird and hollow but I thought those people was just weird.  Today I stopped by Bestbuy and picked up the a6000 and it... actually felt pretty bad compared to my NEX 5! (Sorry to those people who I thought was paranoid).  The grip doesn't fit me as much and it just didn't feel as good.  I wanted to try the NEX 6 but they didn't have it in stock.  Now the price on EBay is barely $400 bucks, I am quite interested in it again...

So for those who have handled all three... is the NEX 6 more like the original 5 or the a6000 feel-wise?
