I'm considering a Sony Mirrorless camera predominantly for video work. I'm super interested in the speed booster/ lens turbo focal length reducer concepts for this style of camera also. Coming from a true optical viewfinder DSLR this is going to be quite a change, though in video mode it's always been live view on the rear screen anyway.
Can any one provide any feedback/thoughts on their experiences with the NEX 6, 7 or the new A6000 models please?
My intention initially would be to use one general purpose kit lens (so I could actually use the fast autofocus abilities) but the rest would be my existing Pentax Prime Lenses via an adapter/focal length reducer adapter. In the latter case there would be no benefits from an autofocus point of view.
My initial questions are the likes of:
From a video quality point of view, is the compression/end result any better on the A6000 to justify the additional cost?
The NEX units appear to have silly icon based menu's. Are these that bad?
but really I'm after any thoughts and feelings on this. The NEX 6 appears to be on clearance in America at the moment for instance. Some reviews suggest the video quality is much much better on the new A6000 too.
Thanks as always.
