Lacking GPS is a unforgivable weakness. Geo-information is very important in travel-photography. Is there a practical solution? Will there be any good GPS mirrorless ILC?

the main reason for having an electronic view finder (Dof preview) is just
because you will not be able to see everything clearly on the LED screen
under sunlight...

Yeah, they wrote it's "External", just like the "External flash", meaning that you can put a microphone on top of it.

Wow! That's a question from old school film cameras! Why do you need DoF preview when you can take a photo and view it on the screen? Especially on a high resolution screen like the a6000 has.

Is there a depth of field preview?
