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

ive owned both nex-5,c3,f3+EVF and now nex-6.

I actual like nex-5 the best in terms of feel. the grip was the right shape and right feel for my smallish hands.

for EVF use, the f3+EVF felt best. the EVF feels more natural on top of the lens than the nex-6. f3 grip is almost as good as the nex-5 but feels less solid in the hands.

the c3 is plain horrible to grip.

the nex-6 has a different grip material. it actually feels classier. although I think the space between the grip and the lens mount seem narrower than the f3 or the nex-5. I wish there was more space in between for my fingers.

the biggest adjustment for me when I upgraded to the nex-6 is the interface. the extra fn button, thumb wheel gets me confuse at times. I seem to navigate much faster on the basic nex-5,c3,f3 button/menu.
