A6000 or Fuji XT1?

These are the 2 hot new cameras out right now. They both boast fantastic AF speed.

The XT1 is more ergonomic with lots of external dials and knobs. It also has a huge EVF and

a split image screen for manual focus.

A6000 has 24mp and probably excellent high ISO performance. XT1 is the proven 16mp Xtrans - would have been nice to have a new upgraded sensor but  I suppose Fuji decided to bring the body up to the level of the existing sensor which is sensational.

XT1 is weather sealed and lots of refinements.

The main difference may boil down to ergonomics and lens choices (Fuji now has a decent range of high quality lenses).

I suspect the A6000 has the better AF system as its 92% or so of the sensor covered whereas XT1 is centre 40%.

What do you think?
