A6600? Good camera to start with E-mounts?

Not if you live in a cold climate

I was out taking photos of the falls colors on a chilly day this week with my A6500.   I was wearing gloves.

The upshot is that you can't operate the rear control dial on the A6XXX series with gloves.  You have to rely on full auto.  If you want to both set aperture and exposure compensation, you have to take your gloves off and freeze your fingers.

Shame on Sony for this poor design on expensive, otherwise excellent cameras.  They keep doing it, model after model, in spite of all the criticism they get for it in every review.
