This combo never worked well for me. The a6000 just doesn't auto focus well enough for moving birds or wildlife. The a6400 works much better af-wise.

I agree about the ergonomics. The small camera size requires you to balance the lens with your left hand. Versus using your right hand with a bigger or heavier camera. Although I shoot handheld 100% of the time, if I were shooting with this combo I'd use a monopod or tripod.

Also, there's no OS in the a6000 body. So there's no menu setting to turn steady shot.

Good luck and good shooting 🙂


Thanks Cavig! I am planning to buy a camera. My heart is on the a6400, but I am also looking at the Canon 80D (there is a great deal for a refurbished 2 lens combo for US$ 699). Based on my experience with the a6000 + Sigma combo, I am not sure if the a6400 will be much help (from the handling prospective). But I also want a camera that can do everything (portrait, sports, landscape etc and easy to travel with) and the a6400 seems like the one.
