A6000 looks huge due to superfast AF and price
19

The AF performance of the A6000 is revolutionary in an APS-C camera, especially so at this size and price.  Having 11fps focus tracking over 179 points in a 24mp APS-C, that's absolutely nuts.  Also the price is low to the point of being a bomb.  All things considered: huge, just huge.

There will be the predictable and idiotic carping here about tri-navi and lower res viewfinder and no touch screen.  That all comes from an inability see what is important to change in the frontier of the industry.  I grant that if you shoot only or mostly landscapes, AF does not impact your shooting style much, but even those who shoot only MF should be able to see that an 11fps tracking AF APS-C in a $650 body is a huge event for the industry.  Every other manufacturer is going to need to rethink their product offerings and try to play catchup.

Congratulations Sony. Looks great!  Can't wait to get mine.
