Well I looked at his photos, and I saw not a lot of sports which I guess would be the main reason to go A6000.

Sports requires tracking AF, no doubt. I am much more concerned about acquiring AF in the first place on even static subjects. That's why I owned the RX1 for only about 2 months . . . It failed to acquire AF in seemingly average household lighting far too often for my taste. Then again, I have not followed the "world's fast AF" on the A6000 enough to know how it does in average household lighting. My A7 is just okay in this regard. My NEX 5N is just okay. My Canon 6D was excellent. If the A6000 is in between my A7 and the 6D then that would be great. If it's closer to the A7 then having the fastest AF would not benefit the OP since he is shooting static subjects now that I look at his Flickr shots. In fact, I don't see any reason in those photos to leave his Nikon system, which seems to fit him just swell for now.
