I have the NEX5 / 5N, Richo GR, X-T1 and you are right. the a6000 looks and feel like a low budget camera. But I think it's all right, why over do it when most of them vill be upgraded within 2-3 years.

How do you like the Ricoh GR?

I like the GR very much. It's my easy to bring `street camera´and mainly for B/W. The X-T1 will be for hiking/travel and the a6000 have I bought to replace the NEX5n. Use it only with manual lenses as a digital back.

Thank you, Sabud; good to know.

As if I don't have enough cameras already, I was thinking about getting a used Fuji X100. These became very much improved AFTER they were discontinued! via a huge Firmware Update. They're available for as low as $550 on the used market now, and if a poll were taken of pros/enthusiasts for a walkabout fixed-lens camera, the X100 is so popular it might win the popularity contest.

But the GR is a comparable alternative.


Be wary of early serial numbers, that you don't wind up with sticky aperture.
