What are some reasons why you'd prefer X-T1 over an A6000 and why the higher price is justified?

You might choose the Fuji for its image quality, Q button and menu UX, physical controls, ergonomics, industrial design, better higher res EVF, higher res LCD scree which is not 16:9, quality of JPGs out of the camera, etc.

You might look at the way Fuji adds value to current and out of date cameras via firmware updates as examples of your X-T1 getting better and faster over time. Not to mention the way they handled the light leak issue as examples of a company which is committed to their customers.

In regards to the price premium, you also have to compare the price of the A6000 and a zoom of equal quality to the X-T1 and its kit zoom. That begin said the Sony is much less expensive as a body, as you would expect because they being a much larger consumer electronics company are masters of low priced goods.

So its up to the user to decide if they like the X-T1 more and whether they think its justified paying a premium to get the camera they like.
