I've been shooting with this combo for almost a week now. It's been amazing! For what it's worth, I'm not a pro and I'm using the AFC to track small children - not birds in flight, or dogs running in the park. I've been happy enough with the A6000's AF performance to say I'm done with my DSLR. The A6000 combined with 16-70Z gives me results close enough to my Canon DSLR with 24-70L lens in a much smaller package and (in my opinion) a much more pleasurable user experience thanks to the EVF/live view and face tracking feature. I've also tested the AF on the 24 1.8z, the SEL 35 1.8 and SEL 50 1.8 and it hasn't let me down. Even wide open on the 50mm, which if I tried to capture with my NEX6 I would have failed miserably. I think you'll be happy with the combo. I'm sorry I missed out on that deal for $300 off!

That's encouraging.  I'm not a pro by any means and just want good image quality and a fun to use camera for all of the typical things as well as to continue to learn and grow as a photographer. The NEX 6 has been great, but in certain situations, I wanted a manual zoom and something a bit better plus some extra reach.
