demaio: I understand that Amazon has to sell these cameras.
But why should I as a customer use such an outdated tool?
Just because of its price?
11 AF points? Really? Bad AF with fast primes typical for all DSLRs. Poor video..
Why on earth should I use it instead of SONY 6000?

why this camera of an a6000? because you can get many cheap, reasonably sharp lenses for F mount. i sold my a6000 for that reason, though i didn't really love using it from an ergonomics perspective either. i agree that if you compare the two bodies to each other in isolation though, the a6000 offers more technically.
why has this review come out now, anyway?

anycolourfloyd: I don't understand why IBIS is a total deal breaker for so many people. The zoom lenses have VR, full frame Z lenses you might use have wide apertures, tripods are an option and it only helps for static subjects. Is it because I don't use video that I miss the importance? I would be interested to know how many people choose the 6500/6600 Sony's over the other 6x00.

For me, the most important thing is how nice the camera is to use and the price of the camera + lenses I want to use. The biggest issue for me is lens selection but for the price of the F mount lenses, I could deal with using an adaptor. It's still smaller and lighter than a d7500, which is what I toss up against.. and I reeeally like the look of the 16-50

If Nikon do release a Z70 and it does have IBIS but costs more and weighs more, I'm personally probably still going to go for cheaper and lighter unless the differences are very small.

larrytusaz: They really need to upgrade that 16-50. Even Nikon's 18-55 AF-P is cheap, small and performs well.

Does the EVF have a level gauge?

i have relatively low pixel peeping standards and tried to love the 16-50, i really did. but i was put off by the insane distortion at the wide end (i know, correct PP, don't shoot at 16mm, whatever) and i also really dislike the power zoom. the size and weight is amazing for sure but unfortunately i hate using it.

agreed, IMO they've hit a home run with the a6100 for casual family/travel but it's hurt by the lack of cheap, reasonable zooms. i've got my a6000 up for sale for this reason, i might try coming back to Sony in a couple of years.
