DtBB: Everyone: We want Full Frame 4K no crop video recording, 60FPS 4K, 10bit internal recording, IBIS, Dual SD Card and high resolution cam.

Canon: Astrophotography! Dur.....

Even full frame 4K would be a start

On article DPReview TV: Sony a6600 first impressions (212 comments in total)

It’s funny how short everyones memories are. Up until around last year when the a7iii was released, Sony was being lauded by some for making major improvements to all their new cameras, think a7s, a7r, a7rii, a9, a7riii, a7iii and just focused on tech, not being for real photographers. Now in the space of just over a year, a whole bunch of people are on their back for not being revolutionary, making modest improvements and are even comparing them to Canon. Sony and basically any other camera company can’t win with all the keyboard warriors knowing best.

People need to chill the f**k out and realise it’s just a camera. If you don’t like it, don’t buy it, simple as that.

dbose: I have been shooting with Sony since it was Minolta and have not been a a person who suffers from GAS (Gear acquisition syndrome.) I have been overall happy with the results my gear gives but now it is coming time to upgrade from my Nex6 and Sony has made the upgrade path very confusing. My mind is going something like this: The a6100 is much better than the Nex6 but wait for $250 more I can get the a6400 which is a bit nicer. Wait, for another $500 I can get the a6500 with IBIS and bigger battery. Wait, for $500 more I can get an a7 III, and plus if I sell all my APS-c glass I can get a couple zooms and have better low light performance. Wait, I got into the NEX series because of size. Screw it, I will get the rx100! I feel Sony has put an Achilles heel on all these APS-c cameras to either push you into FF or down/sideways into the RX100 series.

I think the lower res EVF will turn some people off the A6100. In Australia, the a6400 is only $100 more expensive through retail stores, or can be bought for $250 less if you’re willing to shop online and get a grey market model.

(unknown member): 17 isn't wide enough. 15 would've been doable.

DamianFI I agree, if they were going to reduce the zoom range I would have preferred they made it a bit wider, but as others have said the size/weight would have increased as there was no way they were going to shorten the 28mm end as it complements their 28-75mm.

Personally, I’m not a fan of their choices as on the 28-75mm, 28 isn’t wide enough and 75 doesn’t give you much advantage over 70 (or far less than 105). 17-28 also seems a strange choice. At 17 it’s wide, but not super dooper wide and at 28 it’s kind of in no mans land. I think I’ll pony up the dollars for the 16-35 f2.8 soon. It’s available for AU$2649 (US$1800), so although it’s still expensive, the price has come down a fair bit.

David610: Cat says: Next time get my paw in focus or I brokeh your face. Humans can't even be relied on to use a SW zoom properly?

Cheesy, but good.
