HelloToe: Interesting comment from AmateurPhotographer.co.uk:
"Looking at 100% crops of a garden scene containing a mix of stone and plant detail, the A6000, utilizing diffraction reduction technology, managed to resolve sharper edge detail and reduced haloing compared to the 24.2-million-pixel Nikon D5300, particularly at f/11. Colour and contrast also appeared slightly more accurate on the images printed from the camera."
If its quality can top a D5300 (probably the best quality under $1k right now), I'd consider that a big win!
I own both the D5300 and Sony A6000 and granted the Sony is very good at recording in 1080p/60p the regular Sony lenses are ok compared to the Nikon glass when comparing stills. I am using the D5300 with 18-140mm lens which is very good and a 70mm-300 Dx lens which is also good, and with my Sony I have the kit lens that came with the camera and the E-Mount 55-210 nice but not nearly as nice as the Nikon glass. Now if I had a decent Carl Zeiss lens that it might be a better comparison. ;) I find the Sony to oversaturate colors where to me the Nikon seems more accurate when looking at color accuracy. Just curious with what lens you were using?
I just picked up a GH3 based on some great video and some fantastic still shots, this camera blows away my Nikons on video, not sure on the still yet, but I am trying to find a good all around lens for stills and video and a great zoom lens as well. Open to suggestions. As far as it being game over for Canon I have my doubts on stills, but I need a good lens for comparison. I am thinking of picking up the 12/35
