Re: For me the big difference is the lenses
In reply to don1jam, 8 months ago

You're right, I was just looking at dxomark.

For comparison, my current camera, the a99, rates 14 EVs dynamic range, 1555 ISO low-light performance. My old a55 I had before it was pretty good in low light though, I got some good low-light shots with it using bright lenses, and it rated 12.4 EVs, 816 ISO.

I see both the a6000 and the a77ii are in-between them. a77ii rates 13.4 EVs dynamic range, 1013 ISO. The a6000 rates 13.1 EVs dynamic range, 1347 ISO. That means the a6000 gets reasonably close to my current full-frame camera, even though I might have to use faster shutter speeds to make-up for the lack of stabilization, and have to use slower lenses if I insisted on using a walk-around zoom (my current preference), but if I put a good quality bright prime on it, it could be quite respectable for a portable camera.
