(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.
