a6000 faster than OMD E-M1, faster than most DSLR's (if not all). Good job SONY.

Well, 11fps with live tracking AF is something. It's faster than OMD E-M1 and mind you it's an APS-C sensor with 24.3 Mp! Fastest AF (in the world?) 0.06s CIPA.

For 3 seconds? How long of a burst do you maintain 11fps? And how many times can you do that in a minute? How many RAW images can you rip out per second?

I honestly see no point in any further mirror usage in cameras from now on.

Because the mirrored D4s can shoot 10fps for 20 full seconds and crank out 200 full resolution RAW files with full tracking autofocus/metering/auto ISO etc. for each shot. And right away, it can turn around and do it all over again. All day long. Processor/buffer is just as important.

Not to dampen the enthusiasm, but you get what you pay for. I'm just sayin', keep it all in perspective.

I don't think potential A6000 buyers are cross shopping it with a D4s. If the AF speed/accuracy/tracking is as advertised, it's probably good enough for 99% of the people out there and way better than anything remotely close to this price point.

Here's some detail on the Nikon 1 V2 15 fps performance. THE fastest.

"Sensor and Image Processing
Upgrades to the sensor and image processor have given the V2 an effective resolution of 14.2-megapixels plus some improvements to overall performance. The EXPEED 3A processor and sensor's built-in phase-detect AF system enable the V2 to record still images at 15 frames/second (fps) with full AF tracking for up to 45 Large/Fine JPEGs.

The buffer memory in the new camera has been expanded slightly to handle the larger image files but actually accommodates slightly fewer files at most image sizes, although the maximum buffer capacity for JPEGs remains at 100 shots. The table below shows typical file sizes and buffer capacities for recording continuous bursts of shots.

The V2 can also record still pictures in JPEG format while recording a movie clip – and the movie recording isn't interrupted. Unlike the V1, these shots are recorded with a 3:2 aspect ratio to produce a file measuring 4608 x 3072 pixels with 1080i and 1080p movies or 1280 x 720 pixels with 720p clips."
