I think the biggest difference between the A7 and A6000 for street may be low-light and AF performance.

If you shoot in low-light the A7 would definitely be the way to go.

If you need fast AF then the A6000.

I would think that you'd want the ability to shoot in low light, and that you'd probably use MF for street so.. the A7? And the 35mm f2.8 Zeiss when you can afford it.

Just my 2 cents

If I can add: OP also mentioned unwanted attention, so camera+lens total size is an important factor too. A6000 with 16-50 is clear winner here. A7 with 35mm comes close, but with limitations of prime vs zoom on A6000.

As for money: you can buy A6000 with 16-50 kit and still add a fast lens for low-light like 35mm f1.8 OSS and still beat the price of A7 with kit lens! BTW A6000 with 35mm f1.8 for low light will be better than A7 with kit (this time A6000 will be limited by prime vs zoom on A7).
