much faster AF on the A6000

can you say that with my Sigma AF lenses?

Probably not any slower.

but whats the point of changing if it isn't actually faster? seriously, if you take away the faster AF what does the A6000 offer that I don't already have? and what would I loose like the EVF resolution and no mic input?

seriously, at this point we don't even know which sensor is better - at low ISO without the pdaf pixels there is a very reasonable chance that the NEX-7 sensor might actually perform better

If you use MF lenses there is no reason to change the nex-7 for the A6000.

If you have 3rd party lenses (sigma, zeiss, tamron) or the sony that dont have PDAF support, then probably not worth it. Probably. We dont know if all the improvements come fromt he PDAF or if they also did something to the CDAF. But probably it is the PDAF. And even if it is improvements on both, just CDAF will not be enough to justify the change.

So, if you are only going to use Sigma, then yes, no need (probably, we will have to wait till user reviews).
