what are you shooting?

You have the a6000. How does it do a simple task like continuous AF using the center point aimed right at the subject, when the subject is moving towards you, away from you, or random motion? If ok, can you do it at the top speed of 11 fps, or do you have to slow it down?

What kind of subject, and what's your end use? You should try to get feedback from somebody trying to shoot the same general kinds of things you want to shoot. Shooting bicycle racing, for example, is a lot different than shooting soccer. A camera can be fairly good for one and pretty bad for the other.

And your end use matters because it determines what level of imperfection you can tolerate. If you're making a living shooting professional sports you need the best performance possible. If you're looking to make some fun pictures of your friends and family at play, you can almost certainly tolerate a much lower performance standard and save a great deal of money and weight in the bargain.
