Thinking of possibly getting a Sony A6000...a few questions though?
2 months ago

Hello!,

I'm in the market right now for a new camera and I'm looking at either getting the Fuji X-T1 which looks to be an amazing, but expensive camera. However, I'm trying to look at some other cameras as a possibility as well and have come across the Sony A6000. I really like the size of it especially considering it has an APS-C Sensor in it. I've tried one out at Best Buy and have really liked how it fits in my hand and I actually like the controls on it quite a bit. Also, Sony's implementation for Yellow Focus Peaking is absolutely AMAZING in my opinion and really makes manual focusing fun! My question though is this: I have a cruise to Alaska coming up and I want to make sure I can get quality glass for whichever camera I get. I Know that the Fuji X-T1 has some pretty amazing lenses, but at the same time they all run at close to $1k each. Hence why I am considering the Sony A6000 as the used prices for lenses (roughly around $600 on ebay) is very appealing. How is the quality of Sony lenses? I'm really interested in the 16-70mm Zeiss, the 24mm Zeiss, the big 18-200mm, and the 50mm. Also, I hear many people complain that the lens lineup isn't too great and the future roadmap isn't focused on the APS-C Alpha series but rather the FE lens lineup and was wondering what, if any, truth there is to that? Cause In my opinion, I think the Sony lens lineup is perfect. Why do I need 50 lens options, when 4 or 5 covers everything I need/want? right?

Anyways, any opinions between the Fuji X-T1 and Sony A6000 would be great along with any info that could be provided on the quality of Sony lenses.
