Marty4650: This A6000 is a really nice camera, but so is the NEX-6, which can be bought at a huge discount now. Amazon is currently selling it for $520... with lens, and $440 without.
Sony continues to amaze me with their incredible values in camera bodies (but not so much for lenses.)
They have so many irons in the fire right now (SLT Alpha, E mount, FE mount, FF SLT, high end compacts, etc) that you wonder if they risk becoming a jack of all trades, but a master of none?
I think so far they have done a pretty good job of offering innovation, performance and value. I just hope it all works out to profitability for Sony, so their users can look forward to another decade of great cameras.
Well they are currently the Masters of compact (RX100), Masters of Sytem camera (A6000) and arguable the master of FF (A7). The incredible lack of innovation from Canon and Nikon should be a confirmation that this position is most likely not going to change... However Sony only lose the battle when it comes to marketing and communications (branding). And the sad thing is that the consumer of today seems to care more about this marketing/branding than anything else.

Bahrd: "so there's no means for fitting an external microphone. "
Probably I am not the first who notes that there exist USB-microphones (or headsets).
@noirdesir,The Sony A7/A7R preview got over 2000 comments. But yeah I agree, the RX100M3 is a new standard set once again by Sony.
The FOV is really nice, but i am waiting until they improve the image stability.For that reason: I am more interested in the Sony AS100. The Live view remote is just a genius innovation. I also expect the image and stabilization to be miles ahead of GoPro. :)
starwolfy: I just Hope this camera will fail and not sale because I don't like Sony.(a guy who remembered he bought a super small nice wow genius NEX who electronically failed after 2000 exposures -_- )
Don't you think that any other brand have some other bad models in the huge amounts that they sell?
Its not like EVERY Nex model that gets sold will fail after several thousand shots... (Like every model of the D600 has the dust problem).
Kinda pathetic to have a mindset like this, very narrow minded.
Who no Xperia tablet?
For everyone who is interested in the sensor. The camera sensor is being created by Sony (no suprise)...
Here is the specsheet of the sensor series that they have used the iphone5: http://www.sony.net/Products/SC-HP/cx_news/vol68/pdf/sideview_vol68.pdf
bradleyg5: The A99 is seriously the camera that has me considering selling all my Canon gear to switch too.
What the guy before me already said:do it, do it, do it, do ti, do it, do it, do it, do it,do it, do it, do it, do ti, do it, do it, do it, do it,do it, do it, do it, do ti, do it, do it, do it, do it!!!
