Review summary from DPReview

DPReview Gold Award June 2014
The a6000 is a really solid camera and is better than its predecessor in almost every respect.
Richard Butler Richard Butler Jeff Keller Jeff Keller
80%

Conclusion

The a6000 brings Sony's latest interface improvements and enhanced JPEG processing to a well-featured, competitively-priced mid-range camera. Its stand-out features are its comprehensive video controls and continuous autofocus performance unprecedented at this price. The flexible but optically average power zoom make this a highly capable and compact package.

Reasons to buy

  • Great images from best-in-class sensor
  • Small body with generally well placed controls
  • Fast continuous shooting with class-leading autofocus
  • Excellent level of control over video (including manual exposure)
  • High quality, responsive viewfinder

Things to consider

  • Flash exposures often misjudged
  • Noise reduction can be a bit heavy-handed
  • Missing the touchscreen controls of less expensive models
  • Battery life quite low with power zoom lens

Suggested for

Anyone looking to shoot stills and video. Photographers wanting something small but capable. Amateur sports shooters.

Not suggested for

Shooters used to a twin-dial camera. Anyone looking to just use the kit zoom.

By Paul TOP 500 REVIEWER on 9 April 2014
Style Name: ILCE6000B.CECColour Name: Black
I've had the camera over a week now and has some opportunity to test it and also use it for genuine photos rather than just test shots.

I've got a Sony NEX 5N and last year bought a Sony RX100 - mostly for its small size.

Although I have other cameras those are my main comparison cameras.

My main reason for buying the Sony a6000 was the Sony marketing of supposedly amazing auto-focus capabilities and also for the electronic view finder - which neither the NEX 5N nor RX100 have.

As well as landscapes I do also like to take occasional action shots of my dog and also wild life - a couple of years ago I went on a sea safari and got some excellent shots of dolphins and seals with my Nikon D700.

*** Auto Focus ***

The Sony a6000 has 179 AF points which the Sony marketing implies can quickly track any moving object in the frame and get perfect focus every time.

My young Labrador never stays in one place long enough and its a challenge getting action shots of her - hence my excitement when I saw the Sony marketing of the super fast autofocus system of the a6000 and the videos I saw on the Internet of the a6000 easily tracking fast moving subjects and every shot being in focus!

It looked like all I need do was whip out the camera, switch it on and it'd be able to automatically shot rapid action shots of my fast moving dog.

If only my experience matched the marketing. Instead the Sony struggled to even spot my small brown Labrador in outside locations ( fields, muddy paths etc ). Leaving it up to the Sony camera I was lucky to get any shots in focus!

I toyed with the idea of upgrading to the Sony A6000 as soon as it was launched and finally took the plunge towards the end of 2014, partly as I decided one would also make an ideal Christmas present for my Dad with the intention we could learn how to use it together.

My decision to upgrade to the A6000 from an NEX6 was instigated by the attraction of an increased count of 24.3 mega pixels and the promises of faster and more accurate focusing. In my Dad’s case he had an NEX5R and was struggling with the lack of an integrated viewfinder. Overall I’m pleased with my decision, in particular the additional clarity the extra pixels provide, although I initially didn’t notice any significant difference with the focusing except for a lag returning to full frame view when using auto focus with a manual tweak. My Dad is over the moon with his.

As I have used the camera over the last seven months, I have come to appreciate the additional focusing accuracy and noticed less need to manually tweak before confirming my shot, even when using macro for some extreme close ups. It was also the camera I chose to use for those infrequent lifetime events such as the solar eclipse, such was my confidence in the overall package.

My Dad never really got on without a viewfinder on his NEX5R and has taken like a duck to water with both the integrated flash and the viewfinder of the A6000. He found the change to the menu layout slightly trickier to get used to than I did moving from the NEX6 but after only a few weeks of use seemed to master the main differences sufficiently that he took me through the settings needed for the aforementioned eclipse.

Wow, what a camera! I moved up fro a NEX-5N, itself a fairly stunning camera, but the leap in image quality is noticeable, the controls are improved, auto-focus has to be the best in any CSC so far, and the EVF is far better than I'd expected. I'd say it's almost up there with the Canon 70D for all but the fastest moving sports (once you get used to the way it works) - but the image quality is significantly better with the A6000 of course.

Controls are sensibly located, plenty of customisation of the buttons is available, and the menu system is logically laid out and easy to access.

I've been using this with a mixture of lenses. The SEL18200 (beer can) is my general use lens, and seems to have improved on the A6000. I've also had a lot of fun with the SEL16, which works as well on this as the 5N, and the SEL50 which is even sharper on this body than my earlier NEXs.

Low-light imaging isn't as clean as I got from the 5N, and low-light auto-focus is sluggish, but that's about the only flaw I can find with the camera.

You really won't be disappointed with this camera - I can't believe it's so cheap. It blows some CSCs costing twice as much out of the water.

The best Sony ILC yet. I do wonder why people spend so much on the A7x cameras and the huge additional investment required for new lenses when this humble APS-C camera does so very well. Yes, I understand the argument of FF vs APS-C but the law of diminishing returns applies, I think. Image quality is terrific, but with one important caveat; the standard 16-50mm kit lens is awful, just awful. Do what I did, buy the body only and get the 35mm f/1.8 and/or the 50mm f/1.8 lenses. Both are great, the 50mm is optically better, producing sharper images than the 35mm. I'm told that the 10-18mm f/4 wide angle zoom is good, too (but at a high price). And that's the rub with Sony's APS-C mirrorless cameras: the lens choice is very limited. Perhaps there's some point to the A7x series after all, if you've got very deep pockets.

I find that it's a easy camera to use but wish it had a touch screen. We are all so used to them from phones that to find a picture taking device without one seems odd.
