It’s not every day you come across a compact system camera with autofocus that outperforms a high-end DSLR. But with the a6000 Sony has achieved something very special. Not content with simply creating the world’s fastest autofocus*, Sony has included a focus area that covers almost the entire frame and combined this with superb tracking capability. It leads to what every photographer wants – sharper photos and fewer dud shots.
The autofocus takes 0.06 seconds, which – at the time of writing – is the fastest of any APS-C camera ever made. In practice it means that whether you’re shooting an excited child, a dancer in motion, a speeding car or any other moving subject, the focus will lock on in an instant.
