Owners of Sony a6xxx

What picqued my interest is that the a6500 has WR, IBIS and comes in a small package, I am also eyeing the Sony 24/1.8 and maybe a Sigma 56/1.4, Sony's apsc lens ecosystem maybe smaller than Pentax but they have fast lenses for my interest. The issue is apart from their pricing is the low capacity of battery, how bad is that?

Hi guys, I am just thinking if there are any owners of Sony apsc a6xxx, specifically the a6500? What are your thoughts on the camera? How do you use it? With Sigma's rounded lens line up for the E-mount (16/30/56) I think the a6xxx series becomes more attractive for those who are looking for small set up.

Thank you.

Thank you Merv-O, inasmuch as I want to upgrade, my existing K-30 has barely 20K clicks after owning this for almost 4 years (where it lodged for more than 4 months in the service center due to the aperture block failure)

The K-S2 is definitely a keeper.

@DPR, I can't understand why some Pentax users are clamoring why there isn't a Pentax camera included, I mean we all know that the K-3ii is passé and the KP isn't a pro level apsc.

I simply think Ricoh is purging whatever is left in their inventory and move on...

The negativity of the people around here is so infectious.. Much so the fanboyism is not helping either. U sub.

A GR or a Fujifilm X-100 series, would really make sense, especially in the size and the leaf shutter department.

The Good - The Bad and The Ugly about Pentax
Posted By wed7

Good: Pentax cameras were not driven by marketing department, they are instead promoted within the grassroots level (its users; us!) So ergonomics and handling experience is superb, build quality and weather sealing are superb qualities, and of course, image quality is always a priority.

Bad: This is user (need) dependent but generally these are my observation, slow AFC and its accuracy is sooooo slow vs most competitors, abysmal video capability vs most competitors, lack of 3rd party lens and lighting support, selected cameras with tether support. Release of full frame primes is painstakingly SLOW. Service centers are pretty rare. Modern WR fast prime lenses are also non-existent to match WR bodies!

Ugly: Local pricing is plain bad/expensive (This would also get worse once Pentax continue spewing their "premium" products.)

Now that Kenspo has moved on, has Ricoh (Pentax) eyeing another ambassador? What field of photography?

Will Pentax still compete with the street photography genre? As in small cameras and not K-3 model lines?

Nikon Z6 What did they get right/wrong?
Posted By wed7

Pros:
Price, WR, IBIS, size, weight nice choice of lenses (I like the idea to have a 35/1.8 or 50/1.8 upon entry) and its roadmap.

Cons:
1. Obvious negatives for me would be, why 1 card slot only, at that price point, why Nikon didn't even consider 1 QXD/1SD combination? The QXD only option will drive away enthusiasts.

2. Paltry battery, DSLRs users (especially Nikonians) are used to big battery capacity, heck, even Nikon boasts that the grips Z6/7 are handfull and way better vs it's competitor (Sony). So why chose a smaller battery?
