(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.
