Maybe it's just me, but I find the A6xxx style of the body to be horrible to use for nature work. They're great for performance and compactness, but I hate using them. The EVF on this thing is a missed opportunity in my view, they should have put a bit of an effort to make it significantly better than the rest of the A6xxx series. Adding in focus stacking would have been a nice touch to show they are listening. It seems amazing to have crammed a full frame sensor in that small body, but that's the only interesting thing to me about it.

Basically a small and light a73 in a a6xxx body - appealing to street photogs for sure, not so much nature photographers :)

Basically a small light a73 in an a6xx body, with no joystick, one card slot, smaller viewfinder, same sensor and costs more than an a73 (at release...in the EU) this should have been priced under €1400 not over €2000 (the a73 is under €2000)...and old old menus.... and no proper touch screen... arghhh, buy the a73 already.
