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???
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.
