This happened to me so often I got rid of the Nex3N. The Nex7 seems to be slightly more accurate, but even on center or spot, it will sometimes focus on the foreground in a landscape (see comparison). I don't want to always be second guessing what the camera is going to do wrong!

It's a problem you read a lot of people complaining about on Amazon reviews. Maybe the A6000 will nail it, because of the new processor and a smarter algorithm.

Neah - the A6000 will not solve aperture (DOF, or lack thereof) and FL choices for you.

Of course, that's what the EVF can be used for - after a shot like this you can easily see that you have the settings wrong. Matching the LX5 shot (focus/DOF) is not hard to do, but you have to know what you are doing.

Now the inverse - creamy backgrounds - are easier to achieve with the A6000. This will be a selling point, I am sure, especially when mated to the E35/1.8 OSS lens. Same for low light and indoors shots...

My Panasonic LX5 hardly ever have this problem (see below)....
