Re: a6000 - the nifty beastie or X-T1 - the pricey one?

Granted the a6000 is probably the fastest autofocusing mirrorless and has a great price. The Fuji X-T1 offers other features such as great user experience (on body controls), weatherproofing, huge bright EVF and superb lenses. I have the NEX7 and hardly ever use it. The Fuji kit zoom is far superior to Sony's. Although Sony has improved its lens lineup somewhat to get good glass I had to invest in Zeiss lenses for the E series. And the Fuji has that prized cinematic IQ which is characteristic of their X Trans sensor.

For action I would pick the a6000, for everything else I would pick the X-T1.
