Torn between A6000 and Olypus PEN series...Leaning towards A6000
Jun 20, 2014

Hey all,

Im new here, but not new to photography.  Im replacing my old Powershot G5 and I wanted something that works well for photos AND HD video.  Everything Ive been seeing here seems to point to the Sony A6000 as a very good camera for both stills and video.

I shoot mostly non-moving subjects (but that can change!) and Im very interested in doing video, short films etc.  My budget is $500-600 USD and I want the most bang for my buck.  What would your suggestions be for this price range?

Ive looked at the Olympus PEN series and had initially settled there, then I looked at Sony and Im very impressed.  Years ago, I used to sell Sony video equipment and I know how good their efforts are in this arena so I feel comfortable with choosing the A6000 for that alone.

Thank you!
