Thanks to all.

Gesture: Beautiful. Magnesium alloy. uber Technology.My questions: how resilient to the elements and temperature extremes; how does Sony response to a service issue.
There are so man y fine cameras. If I am spending $1K in the future, I'm picking the OEM with the best warranty service record.
Don't worry about servicing issues, it will last and last...you will get tired of it and buy an updated one before it breaks.And if you are so unfortunate that it breaks the day after the warranty, just buy a new one. It's cheaper and make more sense to buy a new one than to repair outdated consumer electronics.
Angrymagpie: Also, you'd think that they would finally include a hot shoe cover!
That would put the price over 1000$, marketing gurus would object like mad.
maximme: 24MP CMOS APS-C sensor with copper wiring
expect some greenish oxidation if it rains ?
Not if you keep it in a bag with silver lining!
Jiggeroo: I seriously wish this product does not do well as this will force Sony to do either of these: 1. Provide more support to APSC by releasing more lenses. Seriously, the lens line up is lacking without 2.8 zooms, only overpriced f4 ones. 2. Let go of APSC E mount completely.
You can easily tell what Sony is doing here by releasing the a6300, they just want to silence the people wanting an upgrade from the a6000 while disguising the fact that they will no longer release more lenses for the system... and please do NOT tell me to use FE lenses instead.
That's for the next model update, how else can they milk you?
Nicholas128: ... a thousand dollars? Wow that's expensive for this camera.
"By Richard Murdey (2 days ago)only $2.35 per AF point"
That's a day's breakfast money for many people.
flipmac: So the trend of not putting touch lcd and evf in a mirrorless body continues for Sony, eh? I actually expected that although I don't get why. Also, I didn't expect Sony to put IBIS in this model.
But at a $1000 price level, it should have 1/8000 shutter, faster flash sync, improved ergonomics, more dials, etc. The better body material as well as higher EVF are welcome upgrades but are to be expected. Even with the improvement on sensor, AF, etc. I don't see why its body MSRP is $200 more than the KIT MSRP of the A6000.
Simply put, too expensive for what it is.
Alex Permit: $1000?? Oh wow.
"By vadims (2 days ago)In fact, I hoped for $1,200"
You can pay that price or more if it makes you happier, I am sure they will gladly make your pocket lighter, and more spacier so you can pocket your new camera. Feel better now?
No touch screen. Same sub-standard smaller than everyone else screen. (It's like 2.5" usesable area for viewing photos).
I'd be tempted though if:
It's no longer the sluggish dog for sports that the A6000 is. Slow to turn on, locks up after a burst, slow for simple function such as zooming in on a raw preview. Automatic features such as eye AF and tracking AF work in any lighting.
The PDAF is actually usable in anything but great lighting
Better with 3rd party lenses to make up for the horrible sony lens lineup.
Also the LA-E3 won't work with a single one of my sony alpha lenses so hey that may be worth mentioning (the limited compatability).
"and basically no one called them on it."
Maybe someone called them, but no one answered?
kisvakoncl: OMG!!! Easily another "Camera of the Month" by Sony.. :D
By T3 (2 days ago)Would you rather that they wait 5 (or more) years before updating a camera, like Canon and Nikon do?
Yes, that would save a lot of people a lot of money.....
Torstein Wold: No touchscreen. Hard to belive. Sony still only use touch on their toy cameras.
I don`t care if it has the fastest AF in the world if the camera gives me such a hard time choosing what to focus on!
By Matewka (2 days ago)I suggest you focusing on taking photos.
A kodak Brownie will do?
pussycat2013: Panasonic "Oh, wow...how do we sell GH4 now?"
What do you expect for a consumer camera aimed at the average Photo-Joe
RaghavBaijal: As an A6000 user, I find this to be an evolutionary update that took too long at too high a price point.
At this price point of $1000, I was expecting BSI Sensor, IBIS, Touchscreen. The A6000 was launched 2 years ago for $650 body only. This brings better video and better AF (Atleast on paper) for a lot more money.
If this was for $650, I wouln't be complaining. If for $1000, it had IBIS & Touchscreen, I wouldn't be complaining. If for $1000 it also had a BSI Sensor, I would be jumping with joy. As of now, I still think the A6000 is the best bang for the buck camera out there.
My guess is that if the AF has MAJOR improvements, it might just make it to Gold in Dpreview. Otherwise, reviewers will still recommend the A6000 over this as better value if 4K is not needed.
By Thematic (2 days ago)And seriously.... $649?
And that means the a6000 is $399?
Yup! What's wrong with a6000 at $399? Want to pay more?
Tieu Ngao: Overpriced and "made-in-China"!!!No, thanks. I'm happy with my Nikon Coolpix A (APS-C sensor & made in Japan).
i hope you are made in japan and not in the Vietnam or anywhere else.
AbrasiveReducer: One thing I do love about Canon. They show the product and next thing you know...it's available! No road maps, just deliveries. Of course, retailers will need to say it's in short supply but knowing Canon, they'll actually deliver. (One reason retailers love Canon.) This efficiency comes from being big, but even Nikon has gotten much better at actually shipping their products.
low demand item means slow delivery
fotokeena: Headline reads: “Opinion: Do we really need the Fuji X30?”
NO, nobody really need the Fuji X30, or any camera for that matter.Yes, some people want new cameras, but not need.There is a different between want and need.
I simply answered the question as I see it.What makes your statement necessary?
Headline reads: “Opinion: Do we really need the Fuji X30?”
RichRMA: $600 gets you into a lot of m4/3 or APS sensors. I tried considering the camera from a number of angles, but I can't see getting it except for the lens zoom range, the build quality, compared to a cheap DSLR and kit lens. I can't see getting it over something like the Olympus M10, unless putting it in your pocket is an overriding factor.
Quality could be better now that it's made in China, as iPhones can attest to Chinese made quality can be as good or better than any other country.
Michael Piziak: Looks like a lot of electronic parts to break down.
Viking79 －“Electronic parts don't break down” Oh really？Guess you've never heard of TVs or radios broke down in your life heh? hahaha~
