Top 10 Reasons A6000 Won’t Earn Gold

10 – Sony won’t release gold color…”We’re checking into light leaks before we release the gold version. ”

9 – Sony when asked about lenses for A6000 24 MP sensor, “Lenses. We don’t need no stinking lenses.”

8 – Sony tries to bribe Dpreview with an, “Undisclosed cash amount,” according to the Associated Press for, “Clarity and Excellence in Camera Ratings.”

7 – Kit lenses suspiciously missing from early test cameras.

6 – Name was apparently “borrowed” from discontinued schizophrenic medication.

5 – EVFs and LCDs discovered from budget parts bins labeled, “Give to Charity.”

4 – Divorce proceedings from infamous “NEX Name Trial” not yet final.

3 – Sony announces that the secret uncompressed RAW images will be available once you purchase Play Memories Final, not quite ready for release… available for the bargain price of $899.

2 - Sony reveals many useful camera functions, such as the level gauge, are actually available through an in-camera, on-line lottery, if you can find the link in the menu.

1 – Sony’s X-rated apps were cut from final release.

Seriously though:

Budget priced and spec shy when compared to NEX 7

No touch-screen

Out of camera jpgs not up to Fuji, Canon, Olympus

Video display shape (16:9) displays stills smaller than 4:3 or 3:2 LCDs

LCD difficult to see in direct sunlight

Lower spec EVF

AF performance in low light

Kit zoom needs to be better

WiFi / Smartphone apps not fully realized

Although better, user interface still needs improvement
