Mirrorless cameras have been known for lagging behind DSLRs in autofocus speed; Sony is attempting to bridge the gap with a 179 point phase detection autofocus (there's also a 25 point contrast autofocus option). We haven't seen it in action yet, but it's certainly an intriguing model. For under $700 for body-only and about $800 with a kit lens, the a6000 offers an APS-C sensor, the same size used in consumer DSLRs. The 11 fps burst shooting speed is impossible to find in a DSLR at this price point, yet the a6000 includes the beloved viewfinder and a slot for adding flashes and other accessories. The Sony a6000 certainly looks to be a competitor in the mirrorless arena this year.
