Is a5k a good upgrade to f3?
4 months ago

I've NEX-F3, is Alpha 5000 a good upgrade?

My main problem with F3 is slow SD card record times. Does A5K use UHS-I? How fast can it write to the card?

I also want more megapixels and a smaller camera. ANd I hate F3's menu system. Does a5k has the A7/a6k menu system?

Is it true that a5000 has a smaller APS-C sensor than F3? 1.55x crop instead of 1.5x?

My F3 has 900k pixel screen resolution whereas the a5k has 400k pixels... would this be a problem?

I don't consider A6k an upgrade to f3 because it's larger, so I consider it a different class of camera. I might get a6k too, but it's also more expensive. No matter whether I get a6k or not, I will still want the a5k for its small size.
