The Sony A6000 is a digital camera announced February 12, 2014.[1] It is a mirrorless interchangeable lens camera or MILC, and this has a smaller body form factor than a traditional DSLR, whilst retaining the sensor size and features of an APS-C-sized model. It is targeted at experienced users, enthusiasts and professionals. It replaces NEX-6 and NEX-7.[2] But DxO Labs mentions that although uses 24MP sensor as Sony NEX-7, Sony Alpha A6000 is seen more as a replacement of Sony NEX-6.[3]

As other cameras the Sony A6000 is advertised featuring the "world's fastest autofocus" with lag of 0.06 second and 11 fps continuous shooting with tracking AF, but lags for example behind the latest Nikon 1 series with 0.01 second delay and 20 fps continuous shooting with tracking AF. Its MSRP is $800 with a 16-50mm power-zoom kit lens f/3.5-5.6.[4]
