On Sony a6000 Review preview (747 comments in total)

DPJoe2: The a6000's metering appears to be superior to the metering of a D800. I went down to the beach and shot cranes sitting on the rail of a long pier waiting for hand outs from fishermen. The cranes' colors were dark brown. Shooting about 25 degrees from the Sun and at about 45 degrees up into a perfectly clear blue sky, focusing was instant, and locked onto the bird with three green boxes down the bird vertically. The exposure was absolutely perfect. That even though the bird was only 10% of the frame against a blastingly bright sky. Sky blown out? No, it too was perfectly exposed, a solid blue. The purpose of this outing was to specifically test the auto exposure and in-camera processing capabilities. The result was all exposures in daylight at the beach were perfect. Could I have gotten this result with my D800? Yes, but of course the D800 would have required a small amount of post processing in LR for the sky after I determined the correct exposure for the birds. Sony wins this round.

Sony NEX'es (or Alphas as they are today) tend to underexpose 2/3 EV. Or that has been my expreience with NEX-5N, NEX-6 and now with Alpha 6000. This can be easily verified from RAW-histogram using e.g. RawDigger.

That may be the reason why the exposure was dead-on in your example.

I shoot 100% RAW. I'm not going to post the original RAW. Will I be disqualified if I post the JPG converted in LR?

Ok, it's there now. If it's not ok to use LR, then it cannot be helped... It would've worked better as landscape but since "no editing" it is as it came from the camera...

rockjano: Looks like HorusBenu from E-Bay.

Just cost a lot more...

Exactly my thoughts. I dunno, you cannot tell these c-manufacturers apart. I'm sticking with Gitzo...
