This camera would be nice for people that are too lazy to learn photography & rely on the camera to AF and do all the work for them.

This is a must for legal blinded people to shoot and get sharp images like some of the claimed pro photographers that shoot RAW and correct mistakes in Photoshop.

Making a camera that even a 4 years child can take pictures like a professional.


Canon & Nikon will soon copy.

Way to go Sony!

Very exciting new camera. A few corrections: A6000 has better phase detect/hybrid focus vs contrast detect on nex 7. NO nex or Sony e-mount camera has built in image stabilisation - Snapsort seems to list half the nex range as having ois and half as not having it, no E-mount cameras do! BionzX is a big improvement in image processing, but Snapsort don't seem to have a category for that. Both cameras have self cleaning sensors. No way would Sony release a non-sensor cleaning interchangeable lens camera.
