I was quite surprised when my camera store contacted me this morning that they had an A6000 with my name on it. I didn't think it would be available till at least the 15th of this month.

I really just picked it up and haven't had time to play with it too much. The autofocus does seem to be improved a lot. I'm kind of disappointed by the 'feel' of the system, it feel a little less premium compared to my NEX 6, at least in my hand. Maybe I just expected the metallic looking bits to feel cool instead of like painted plastics ;). I was so used to my NEX 6 menu's that I need to take some time to get familiar with these, lol!

Please let me know if I can do anything to help you out in your decision when considering purchasing this camera. I'm happy to do what I can posting images, explanations and others thing regarding this camera. I will go out and shoot some pics later today.

O I'm in the Netherlands, for those wondering where this camera showed up in stock.

I had it a week ago, and my impression is that it is great. Af is so much better then the nex6 that i really can't believe you don't notice that. Even my 50mm Sony is like a totally different lens.
Greetings Rob.

I think I wrote it's improved, a lot even. I just "complained" a bit about how the camera feels in hand.

So weird that cameranu had them. Must have been for only a very short while because I was checking that (and every other big site) for a good 10 days quite regularly. Very happy with my purchase so far.

Feel is subjective indeed, for me it feels more mature, tighter, the shutter release button feels less flimsy. The more customisable buttons are a big plus too.

I ordered last week Thursday, and received it on Friday the day after. Talk about fast

Getting used to it as we speak! I'm very happy with how it feels now. I just expected a little more metal I think!

I really had to get used to the new menu, but I'm getting there. Couple of things bug me though, to zoom in you have to use a different button then on the nex, no level gauge, what's up with that! I use grid now to keep the lines straight but what a awful decision not to include it.
Could install same apps from My play memories account on the A6000, and the evf is better adjustable for me as a glasses wearer.
