Sony released this interesting bluetooth mic ... I think it also works with the a7/a7R
According to http://store.sony.com/microphone-transmitter--zid27-ECMW1M/cat-27-catid-All-Camcorders-Accessories;pgid=YaVekzJizz1SRpzpWbJT83BP00000kmVtP9f?_t=pfm%3Dsearch%26SearchTerm%3DECM-W1M
... this is what it can do:

Not only can you record crisp, clear sound up to 300 feet away, but you can also enjoy two way communications between you and your subject. This unique feature enables you to give your subject direction while capturing only their voice, or you can chose to capture both their voice and yours while filming".

I'll start building my Sony/Zeiss FE lenses kit. The future of compact FF mirrorless + high speed AF + tracking feature is within reach. I'll be the 1st one on pre-order list when Sony is ready ;)

The performance of the A6000 looks awesome, and the price point is very good...Sony is bringing it's A game!  This looks like a great little travel camera for work trips, and I think I'll be purchasing one.

Help me to understand why Canon/Nikon full frame cameras don't offer the same wide area coverage of focus points as the Sony A6000???

Sounds good to me ... if they can manage the AF speed/accuracy of a6000 in a8R, I'd pick up one for sure.

Just got an a 6000 for my parents
And I'm sorry to say the AF is not much different to that of the EOS M
Anyone else notice it's not living up to the hype?

Maybe I'm wrong, but perhaps this is a mirrorless vs (d)slr thing?  Every mirrorless camera I've used has a wide area of coverage, whether FF (Sony), APS-C (Fuji) or Micro 4/3 (Olympus, Panasonic), while every dslr I've used, FF or APS-C, has the focus points lumped in the middle, regardless of how many of them there are (there's better coverage with APS-C, but that seems to merely reflect the crop factor - the FF Nikon D600 has the same focus system, more or less, as the APS-C D7000, but because the sensor is so much smaller on the D7000 the focus points cover more of the sensor).  This is one reason why I prefer mirrorless.

Looks like you may have gotten a defective camera, coz everyone I know who got the a6000 and every review on the internet say that the AF is absolutely fast and accurate.

Because of the mirror - the submirror directing the rays onto the AF sensor has to fit into the body/underneath the main mirror, so its size and position are limited. Which means that peripheral points wouldn't see a thing.
Solutions:
A) a much larger mirror box to accommodate a full sized mirror - plus completely new lenses with a much larger flange distance. Not good. Not at all.
B) throw the mirrors out completely and have a clean optical path between lens and sensor. Have you noticed how far out the 70Ds dual pixels can do PDAF? Works with existing lenses and, if done consequently, reduces costs for both parts and assembly/adjustment.
