sounds good! i would love to hear how the 16-50 performs, I was thinking of getting that one for my street shooting / travel due to it's small size.
what cam have you come from?

yeah i felt portraits with 1D III and Sigma 50-500 was a bit intimidating. Even with my 50 1.8 it was a bit beefy.

Definitely took some time navigating through the menu system to adjust settings. Actually had to crack open a manual ;-)a

What are you using for a manual? I bought mine a couple weeks ago and all it had was a little booklet, which was of little help. There were also instructions to download a manual from Sony's site, but all I could find on there was the same booklet I already had... Maybe I was looking in the wrong place.


Nikon D80, D7000, D750, N90S, FA, FM2, F, F2, 1J3... and lenses.
Rolleiflex 2.8C, Baby Rolleiflex, Ricoh Ricohmatic 44, etc.

This is interesting to watch if you haven't already. About 40 minutes in when he gets to camera settings is what I found most useful.

Just got A6000 for Christmas. I have been away from shooting anything due to such bad eyesight but I love the view screen and I can use the view finder. I can't with my canon gear. I need a zoom lens for it and a macro. I have a question will any adapter ring work with my macro and allow for autofocus? It is a tamron built for Canon. So far I am loving this little powerhouse.

I've heard good things about the metabones adapters with canon lenses being quite good but i havent used them myself. I believe they are quite expensive.

Excellent. I'm glad you found a camera that works for you. I sold my Oly gear because it didn't work in my hands.

I find Gary Friedman's manual to be very helpful. From FriedmanArchives.
I keep going back to it because the cam has a lot of menu items and because my last cam, now my other cam, is quite old.
