Re: Using NEX-5, concerned about feel of a6000

The quality of the NEX-5 body was very good. I liked the solid feel it had. But image quality and response also count. I sometimes just missed a great shot due to the shutter lag, for example.

Lets keep things in perspective. After some years, you will not remember the touch or the grip of the camera. When I view pictures from years ago, I do not think: Wow, that camera felt as solid as a brick. The only things that count is the subject of the picture and the quality of the picture.

The a6000 or NEX-6 will give you better performance, less noise and better jpeg output. That counts for the future. Not the grip.

And how long needs a modern camera to live? After only a few years we feel the 'need' to upgrade. I used my old Canon AE-1 for almost 20 years. That will not happen again with the fast moving technology today. (I do however use the old lenses thanks to the mirror-less design!)
