Sony a6000




I still haven't come to any final conclusions about my Sony A7 and A7r. But I do have a couple of great e-mount lenses, the Zeiss 35mm and 55mm and I wondered how they might perform on the newly released a6000. Since it's one of Sony's reasonably priced cameras I bought one and picked it up yesterday. 

First off it has three great virtues. Firstly the AF is what everybody says it is. It's lightning fast. I've certainly never used anything faster. It even works for video as in the clip I shot below. 




As you can see, it's fast and it's smooth as well. Very impressive. 

The second great feature is the EVF. Apparently there are less pixels in it than in the NEX-7, but that doesn't seem to matter because it's very sharp and clear and again pretty much the best I've used. And yes I think it's better than the one in the X-T1. Absolutely superb. 

Picture quality is very similar to the NEX-7 from a first look. 24MP and it produces nice files though it does seem to generate some noise at around ISO 400. However, the third thing that I like from my initial tests is that the jpgs. are very similar to to those from the A7 and A7r, which means they are very good indeed. Certainly Sony are leading the field in this these days.








So all in all it looks good and certainly the focusing speed is pretty remarkable. I'll try to find a situation in the next few days to test it out seriously.
