Re: NEX 7 vs A6000

I never had the 7 but sold my Nex6 and had A6000 a few weeks now.

Build feels slightly better than 6 but it is very light camera, maybe too light for some people who associate weight with build quality.  Nex 6 didn't break, I am not expecting A6000 to.

Focus is fast and tracking is very good, a lot depends upon the lens capability though.  The "worlds fastest" claim I believe relates only to it with the kit 16-50mm lens.

The Nex 6 was not a slow camera though.

Main improvements I see are, focussing, better menus and battery life.

Who knows if there will be a further A7000 camera?  It is not obvious. I think there is just room price wise below the A7 but to have any extra features over the A6000 it might tread on the A7 toes a bit.  I would rather see some new APSC lenses.  We don't all want FF.
