Sony has announced its new Alpha a6000 mirrorless interchangeable lens camera, which is intended to replace its popular NEX-6 (Sony is in the process of retiring its NEX branding). Alpha a6000 features a 24 megapixel CMOS sensor, the latest Bionz X processor, and a refined Hybrid AF system that covers 92% frame area. The new AF system allows for 11 fps continuous shooting with subject tracking, and boosts what Sony called “the world’s fastest autofocus”. The camera also comes with an OLED viewfinder, Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity. Sony a6000 will be launched in April and is available in silver or black. The camera retail for $649 body only, or $799 as a kit with the 16-50mm F3.5-5.6 power zoom lens.
