Backup camera when the D7000 is just to big

Im currently looking for an APSC sized sensor compact as a replacement for the D7000

for landscape photography and star trails. I had a D7100 but the problem comes down to size for long hikes to hard to get at places.

Dont bag me for mentioning this dirty word over here but I was considering the Sony a6000.

Question is I guess, would this be a worthy replacement on hiking trips when the D7000 is just to big and heavy?  Im also not familiar with the quality of the lenses from Sony. Currently im using  a Nikkor 50mm, 1.8, Sigma 10-20 4-5.5 as my main lenses.
