I get loaned with A6000 and 16-70/f4 lens. since I read discussion on MP count resolution, I think this is good time to share my thoughts and experience with A6000 so far.

let me say that I have to applaud Sony for this camera especially for it's AF tracking. they really did remarkable job. this makes motion and video photography good. very fast, accurate and responsive.

however, after comparing it with my X-T1, I find it underwhelming as far as viewfinder and picture quality is concerned.

I not know if it is lens fault or limitation of lens on 24MP sensor, but I find results underwhelming. I not say it's bad, it is still very good. but for 1k+ premium, it is decent quality only or not worth it. is this work of AA filter? is this really a Zeiss lens? results I see is reminiscent of NEX-7 where issued NEX lenses are very poor on it. but this is CZ issued lens, yes? I still find it hard to swallow and difficult to process thinking it cannot do as good as Fuji XF 18-55 which is way cheaper and half-cost. is higher MP count of 24MP culprit? it is possible also, considering lens may be out-resolved by sensor. I cannot try lens on lower MP E-mount Sony camera because I not have body but wish to see if result become better. but so far combination with this lens and the camera is not happy feeling and felt cheated. can only imagine if lens was Sony kitlens. maybe worse.

any experience also?

I don't have the A6000 but I do have an A7 and a NEX-6.   The X-T1 is my personal favorite.

The MP of the image is really a terrible comparison for IQ.  You should stick with what you think looks better.  The Fuji lenses are hard to beat, but the zeiss should be pretty solid.
