Re: Decisions decisions (16-70 or the A6000)

As much as I myself am getting an A6000, it needs to be remembered that lenses last (and generally retain their value over time fairly well), and bodies grow obsolete fairly fast.

If you buy the SEL1670Z now, by the time you have more money to splurge on a new body... the A6000 might be cheaper... or there might be a successor. The converse cannot be said.

That said, it is also understandable if you just want to play with the awesomeness that is the A6000 right now. Life is short.

(As much as I am interested in the SEL1670Z as well...   I gave away my 5N, so I have exactly zero bodies to use with my E-mount lenses until I get the A6000.  So my choice has been conveniently eliminated. :P)
