If you've ever driven in New York city you know how quickly you can go from smoothly zipping along,green lights all the way to stop and start gridlocked traffic.
I'm Lori Grunin and while that might be a bit of a hyperbole it's really not very far from what it feels like for me to shoot with Sony.
The camera flies with a beefed up auto-focus system, excellent 4K video with high level supporting features, and improved low-light photo quality over the A6000's already great images.
It has some of the best photos in it's class with accurate automatic white balance, nicely rendered detail, decent tunnel range, and an above average noise profile.
Sony's updated auto focus system's much better for continuous shooting bringing it up to about the same accuracy as similar DSLR's in the thousand dollar range as well as the fast systems in Olympus and Panasonic [UNKNOWN] models.
The new sub segmented clump of 15 small AF areas which it uses to track does significantly improve the experience of using auto focus But the group of AF points does get easily distracted by other elements in the scene.
I did get a few good shots from most of my bursts though, and you'll probably find even the slightly out of focus ones can pass at a smaller size.
Physically, it's only a bit different from the a6000, but all for the better.
I wish Sony had made more changes Just so and added in body image technization.
Combined with a size advantages of a mirror less interchangeable lens model is a lot to appeal to enthusiasts who might otherwise buy a fast general purpose CLSR.
So where's the gridlock?
Sony didn't fix the frustrating operational issues of it's current A series model.
For those details, you'll have to read my review on CNet.
