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

Are those the only two choices?  

If you're looking at the 16-70 I'll assume you have $1000 to work with.

You can get the Sigma 60mm for $239.

You can get the Rokinon 12mm for $399.

So, two terrific primes for $638, substantially less than the price of a new 16-70.

Squirrel away the unspent ~$362 toward your next e-mount body for when your current body dies.  And who knows, by then, you might get a new or lightly used A6000, at a substantial discount. Or a nice NEX-6 or 7 for even less.

Just offering a contrarian opinion, and of course, it is only an opinion.  

Happy shooting!
