I’ve been talking a lot about Sony after having mostly switched to using Sony after 17 years with Canon. For us, this was a huge, and very complicated decision. What got me interested in the Sony system was our need for a camera to take running, or for any activities where weight was critical – but so too quality.
Much of our photography is produced on real days out, on the fly, and without the ability to carry anything bulky. For years we dreamt of a camera with a wide angle lens capable of shooting a lot of frames per second, all while producing quality images that we could be 100% confident in. And, we wanted it to fit in our pocket. We finally found all of this in the Sony a6000. Okay, it doesn’t quite fit in a small pocket, it depends on what lens you have on it, but almost. It does however meet all the requirements we dreamt of; 11fps, highly accurate auto focus, a very sharp Zeiss 16-70mm lens (24-105mm with conversion) and the ability to shoot Raw.
The a6000 is the camera I tell people to get when they want one, all around perfect system – yes, it does exist.
