Took my A6000 and my T3i on a trip to Nice, France.

The kit lens (16-50) on the Sony seems inconsistent, but sometimes it does pretty well. Maybe it's just me. A larger max aperture lens would be my next acquisition for low light, although the Sony seems happier at higher ISO's than the T3i, which sort of makes up for some of it. I had a Canon f1.8 50 with me but it seemed too long a focal length for some things, and didn't autofocus well in anything but bright light on the Sony.

I used the Sony much more than the T3i mostly because it was so much smaller and lighter, I had a Sigma 10-20 on the Canon which made the combo surprisingly heavy.

This one's from my A6000 and Samyang 12mm F2.0. Great combination!

Looking at possibly making the switch from my 7d to the mirror less world. A6000 looks like a pretty good contender so far. These images are definitely helping my confidence level!

If I didn't have so much invested in Canon already I would have made the COMPLETE switch to Sony, Right now the a6000 + sony 35 1.8 combo is all I have and what I use for my everyday / travel kit..

Kinda the same here .. i just got the a600

But I also just bought a 5d3 in feb..before the price drop.. feels foolish to sell after so little use and at such a loss..
But I think when the a7rii is released and I see and read about what the average person has to say about it I may just do a complete switch ..

Right now my thoughts for an entire kit are the 16-70mm, 35mm f1.8, and possibly the 55-210mm. Any thoughts on those? How do people like the 16-70mm. Sample images from any of you out there?

I have the 16-70Z and absolutely love it. It's a fantastic all rounder. Currenly also using the 24Z and SEL50. Might sell the 24Z to get the 35mm or just get the 35mm on top. The only thing where the a6000 is a bit of a letdown (to me) is the startup that can be slow sometimes, the less than amazing high ISO performance (but good enough) and mainly the slow buffer. It's great being able to shoot 10fps but when you have to wait for 2mins afterwards to check the pictures, things become pretty annoying.

There recently has been a firmware update (external link) which improves startup time for the A6000.

Key West weekend with the A6000 and the kit lens. I used this along with my DSLR Canon. I thought these came out great, I use manual exposure mostly. Nice rendering and light.

i find it difficult sometimes to get pictures as sharp as i know they could be with the ef24-70 mii.. manual focus of course ,, i feel the clouds shouldve been sharper .. 10 sec exposure on a tripod .. i suppose it could have been camera shake

My guess is this:

Clouds move and trying to freeze clouds with a shutter speed of 10 seconds isn't going to work. At F/16 you're probably also suffering from diffraction. And then there's also some atmospheric haze (distant objects).
