Hey guys,

I'm trying to decide between these two mirror less cameras that have recently been announced. I'll be buying the camera mid-april and I was wondering which camera you guys would buy. I'm a beginner photographer so I thought I'd ask reddit.

Both seem to be at the exact same price point. The A6000 seems to have better specs while I guess the M43 system has more lens? I heard that E mount has enough lens and a wide variety also that there will be everything I need at similar prices to M43 lens, with similar quality.

Thank you!!

You did not say what was important to you.

Features...don't know.

Video-making...the nod goes to the A6000.


Ergonomics....definitely the A6000.

Picture quality..colors, etc....maybe a tie.

Detail, low light, high ISO...the A6000.

Compact numerous lightweight lens choices...the E-M10.

IS stabilization...the A6000 uses OSS in the lenses which is superior to the E-M10's 3-axis IBIS.

Controls/UI...maybe the E-M10. Menu choices...definitely the E-M10.

Eventual resale value...the A6000.

Appearance...I prefer the A6000's NEX-rangefinder look but everyone has a different opinion.
