I'm probably all alone on this but I'm hoping one day for a FF sensor in an A6000 form factor body.

I like that idea as well but the huge size of most full frame lenses would make the small body seem somewhat pointless

It's perfectly possible to design reasonably sized FF prime lenses, if you don't insist on extreme apertures. For instance, a 35mm f/2.8 can be quite small (by modern standards).

Oh well, I already have four FE lenses I use with my A6300 / A6500 and they are fine.

  • FE 28mm f/2.0
  • FE 85mm f/1.8
  • FE 90mm f/2.8
  • FE 70-300mm G

There are others that I would invest in if I had an A6xxx form factor w/FF sensor. Actually there are a couple other FE lenses I plan to acquire anyway (seriously considering the Sony 200-600mm + 1.4 Extender).

I also already have A99 FF with big lenses (16-35mm f/2.8 ZA and 24-70mm f/2.8 ZA and several others) which I rarely use (I enjoy the small form factor of A6xxx and E / FE lenses). As I age I have more difficulty carrying the heavy weights I am now sold on the Sony E / FE system. For walkaround I use my A6xxx with a light weight lens but have the capability of mounting a larger lens when needed (that's a nice capability IMHO).

At this point in my life I have become a lazy photographer. I don't struggle over image IQ or details but enjoy content and simplicity. A6000, A6300, A6500, A99, A900 w/Sony + Zeiss + Sony G Glass
