"#1 recommendation SEL35F18 35mm f 1.8 prime lens (becomes a fast 50 for this crop sensor, with stabilization)Cons:-In camera processing not as advanced as the older and lesser qualified Nikon J bodies-Not as weather sealed as Olympus or other mirrorless bodies (I was originally going to get another Nikon 1 series the AW for all weather, but the image quality wasn't nearly as good... still, if I'm shooting in the snow rain I'll be paranoid this camera will break if getting wet or super humid as opposed to many other weather sealed options out there).-Raw quality isn't easily compatible with Photoshop and RAW's aren't as impressive of an improvement versatility as my Nikon bodies."
_
"It's obviously not as fast on the viewfinder as my full-frame SLR, but when I don't feel like carrying around a SLR and still want a very good quality image, this does the job almost perfectly."
_
"Image capture was VERY nice under low light and high ISO."
_
"Like others, I was looking for a travel camera that would take really good pics and was easy to handle (both size weight and functions."
_
"It's crisp and clear images are amazing."

Lens

Lens:
"Used with Sony lenses or lenses made for this camera focus is fast and dead on."
_
"That's because the kit I received had a defective lens, and I wasn't able to really take any pictures with it."
_
"The kit lenses are not the best but will get you started and are much better that some other kit lenses I have had over the years."
_
"I had to purchase one this bands that attaches to the protector, but the other end is not so easy to fix, particularly with the 18-50mm lens."
_
"What I don't like so much (but these are really just nitpicky, since I pretty much love everything...)--Kit lens doesn't seem to be as good a quality as the 55-210mm."
_
"My only complaint is the lack off a wide range telephoto lens."
_
"I have added additional batteries and a Pelican 1200 case which fits the camera body, the two lenses and additional room for batteries and cards perfectly."
_
"However, you can buy an adapter (about $300) and use Canon Nikon lenses, which is pretty cool."
_
"I love both of these lenses for different reasons, and I think the next lens I'll get will either be a 50mm or 35mm."
_
"If you're not a zoom fanatic I would recommend buying just the camera itself without the 55-210mm lens."
_
"I bought the package deal with the standard kit lens and the 55-210mm lens, and especially with the 55-210mm, I've taken some of the best photos I've ever taken, and I've only scratched the surface of what this camera can do!"

Photo

Photo:
"Grade D. Biggest disappointment so far is the NFC function of transferring photos from the A6000 to mobile phone, using an app called PlayMemories Mobile (from Sony)."
_
"I loaded a battery and SD card, powered up, switched to the P (program) function and was taking very satisfactory photos."
_
"When the opportunity arrived for me to teach our school yearbook class, it was time for me to learn how to take good photos."
_
"It automatically overcomes problems I have had with indoor people shots and I expect outdoor scenic photos will be easier as well."
_
"Takes beautiful photos and very lightweight compared to my 10-year old Canon."
_
"Great photos! "

Quality

Quality:
"I've been extremely disappointed with the quality of parts on this camera, and the ease at which they break- not to mention my horrific experience with Sony's repair service and all the money I've spent fixing a brand new camera."

"The kit lenses aren't the best quality though, so you will want to spend some $$$ to buy higher end glass."
_
"It's obviously not as fast on the viewfinder as my full-frame SLR, but when I don't feel like carrying around a SLR and still want a very good quality image, this does the job almost perfectly."
_
"It seems the perfect choice for someone who wants the quality and versatility of a DSLR, but without the larger size and weight."
_
"I've been extremely disappointed with the quality of parts on this camera, and the ease at which they break- not to mention my horrific experience with Sony's repair service and all the money I've spent fixing a brand new camera."
