Dilettante - my hobby is buying & selling cameras not photography!
Panasonic GX7, Olympus E-PM2 & Canon S90 (IR Converted 590nm)

I had a an A6000 for a while but returned it.  The lenses aren't there yet and the sub $700 ones were not as good as other systems.   I went with a used A57 which rates the same as all the current micro four thirds cameras.  I have yet to see a quality difference except for even the old minolta lenses my dad gave me are better.  Unless either Sony starts making improved moderately priced native lenses or one enjoys manually focusing, I don't see a good reason to go with Sony E cameras.   Another feature I really like about my A57 is the built-in IS which I think some Micro43 camera have.  That is another reason I am staying away from E mount for now.  Someday if I get the money I will look at the FE cameras or stick with the ones with internal IS.
