Replacing NEX-3 with a6000
4 months ago

My NEX-3 broke -- the shutter button simply doesn't work anymore. Sony charges $178 for repair. I'm thinking of buying an a6000 instead. My question is: I could either buy just the camera body; I still have the old 18-55 zoom lens. Or I could buy the a6000 with the new compact 16-50 zoom for $150 extra (the lens by itself is $300). Is the compact 16-50 worth the extra $150? I think the a6000 is quite a deal smaller than the NEX-3 so it is perhaps a petty to put the old 18-55 on it. Any opinions?

By the way, I also read that the Sony iPhone app is terrible. Is that true?
