(SR5) Some more A6000 tidbits. Has Bionz X processor and “improved” RGB filter

I got some info from trusted sources about the A6000:

– 24,3 Megapixel Exmor-R sensor
– Improved RGB filter
– Hybrid focusing, contrast and phase detection (though phase detection pixels)
– Fastest AF of all E-mount cameras
– Bionz X processor with adaptive noise reduction, increased sharpness and diffraction reduction
– ISO 100 up to 25,600
– Price around 650 Euro for body only.
– Built-in EVF in the corner just like the NEX-6 (an anonymous non verified source said it has the same quality of the A7/A7r EVF).
– On the back similar controls as the current NEX-6
– Camera replaces both the NEX-6 and NEX-7 cameras

I also have been told there will be no real new E-mount lens. But as you know one more (bigger) announcement has to come in 4-6 weeks from now. So there is hope to see new E and FE lenses by than!

The A6000 announcement will be made on Wednesday (Feb 12) at 5-6 am London time.

(SR5) New A6000 has fastest AF of all E-mount cameras.

The current NEX-6 controls you see here on the back will remain almost unchanged on the soon to be announced A6000.

A couple of sources told me that one of the very big improvements of the new A6000 is the autofocus speed and accuracy. The A6000 has the best AF of all E-mount cameras and the sources told me that you really “feel” the improvement.

And yes, the new A6000 will replace both the NEX-6 and NEX-7 models even if the new A6000 has the NEX-6 layout (no Tri Navi of the NEX-7). There will be also no new FE lenses yet but as I told you a couple of times now I expect Sony to make a major A and E-mount announcement before the NAB show in Las Vegas. This means some time in between mid March and early April.

Reminder: A6000 has 24 MP sensor with phase detection pixels on sensor.
