as a very happy NEX-7 owner I see the A6000 as a very possible second body. don't care about faster AF, but at the price it is much lower and it should have pretty much the same image quality as my 7

of course I will wait until the real tests are in

I would say IQ will be a bit better:

20% better highISO performance due to different RGB filter

gapless microlens design sensor

Those 2 things should play in favor of a6k IQ over NEX-7

Now if you shoot JPEG's as well - than we can add BIONZ-X chip that has better jpeg engine, better WB as well as area specific NR. Also it is now possible to switch NR off completely!

I'm curious how much longer the NEX-6 and 7 will be available from Sony. Since the A6000 presumably will not replace the NEX-7, will Sony continue to sell the NEX-7 indefinitely? How much longer will the old NEX-6 be available as a new camera?
