Do you people read? It says the Sony is a better camera. So what is wrong with you!

This doesn't make any sense. A6000 has a definite victory over here.

According to these yahoos, err, snapshot, the A6000 beats the Canon 7d MK2 but loses to the 70d. Perhaps you read these comments but that is really odd that the 70d beats the A6000 but the A6000 beats the 7dMK2. Thus then the 70d is better than the 7dMK2. If A > B and B > C then A > C. Well, Canon will be thrilled to know their new camera is less good than their old camera.

I'm looking for better macro shots and I need to attach a macro ring flash or twin flash . Can you do that with the a6000 because I much prefer the size over the 70d

Sony A6000 is a far better camera, 1.5 stops extra of dynamic range, much faster shooting, 20% better image quality, better maximum light sensitivity, much less noise at high ISO, lighter, smaller, cheaper. This is absurd that the 70D wins. I am fully convinced now, i'm switching form Canon to Sony. All that Canon has to offer is good L lenses at reasonable prices. If you look at the prosumer and entry level Canon lineup for the past 4 years, it's the same camera over and over with different bodies, different names and slight changes. How boring.

The advantages of the A6000 make it a better camera in my books by a long shot. Yet somehow it still loses? You guys need to rethink your comparing strategy.
