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

I handled both cameras at B&H. One thing I noticed abut a6000 that due to the bigger grip the room between it and the lens is really tight and I don't have big fingers.

For someone it might be a problem,especially with the larger lenses/adapters.

Other than that a6000 feels like a really high end rangefinder, even to the point as too much of a camera for some.

I liked the evf on a6000 better than on nex-6 but not to the point where it would become a deciding issue.

The nice salesperson let me handle z16-70, which we attached to the nex-6. I have mixed feeling about this lens. I felt  a bit bigger than I wanted to be, I am not impressed neither by quality of build nor by the samples of photos I've seen on this forum so far.
