About me:

I started with a Sony a200, replaced that with a used a300, and enjoyed them both. Then it was an a77 that was just too big and heavy to be fun. I moved on to an NEX-6 and now an a6300.

"Now I want baby a9."

I do too. I'm pretty committed to APS/C and I get the next new camera in the family. Looking forward to an a7000,

I see this as an auxiliary camera rather than the primary picture taking machine in the household. This is the camera you put in the glove box of the car, in your backpack, or take with you when you aren’t planning to take pictures. Higher Image Quality is always better than lower Image quality of course, but obsessing over the IQ of a pocket size, fixed lens camera is a foolish exercise.
