I have personally compared the EOS-M and the sony a6000 side by side since and overall i still prefer the EOS-M about the only aspect I saw the a6000 better the EOS-M was iso 100 shadow recovery, high iso was a wash, AF was not much different the a6000 seems to lock nice and quick but most shots were out of focus and i find with the right lens the EOS-M performs pretty well in servo mode. certainly better than the a6000 did anyway as far as sharp keepers go.
Thanks for this highly important info.
I find it highly disturbing the A6000 AF is this poor. I actually have similar encounter with the OMD EM-5 but dare not bring it up 'cos folks will think I am crazy. I attributed it to the slow EVF response when the subject moved.
Good to know the grass isn't necessarily greener on the other side.
I am still waiting for EOS-M3 with DPAF and EVF. Guess M3 with 22 f/2 lens will be better than the best compact camera (incl. G7X, LX100 and RX100M3) out there.
