Coming back to APS-c. Need to use LA-EA.

I have been using Sony cameras since A700.

My last camera was an A7, which I have just sold for three reasons:

1. It had a high shutter count and some buttons where already failing intermittently.

2. I was sick of taking it and its big lenses in my backpack when I hike (and a do a lot of it)

3. I could not refuse to sell it and all my FF lenses for the price one guy offered.

I have just bought a barely used A6000 (which is coming through the mail - snail speed mail) but I have seen the test shots here in DPreview showing a green tint in the lifted shadows that got me worried. I downloaded the RAW files and opened it through C1 and LR. The tint is horrible.

Then I opened it in DXO9, and it was vanished.

Question: if I have to process lifted shadows through DXO and then do local adjustments in other software that I like best, it will be a PITA. Do you have another workaround?

I could resell this A6000 and go for a A6300 or A6500 as these cameras are not plagued by the green tint problem. But There are some caveats:

1. Price.

2. Upgrade to newer version of LR/C1 AND DXO if a6500. Only DXO needs upgrading if a6300.

3. I do not need 4K.

4. Do you believe that the IBIS have been a huge benefit for stills usage? Whenever I shoot a long exposure, I usually use a tripod...I do reckon that it is a must have for video shooters.

5. Have you tested a6300/a6500 with LA-EA1&2? Do they have much better AF with these adapters than a6000?

Thank you in advance for your feedback.
