Good question! I actually bought the A6000 a few months back when we dropped it to get my feet wet with mirrorless cameras. I'd say it's definitely a solid starter camera because of the quality/features for the price point. It's suuuper small and lightweight and it's autofocus is pretty dang solid. My only gripes are that the body is almost too small for the size of my hands and I'm not as excited about the eyepiece/viewfinder being off-centered on the top, left corner of the body. But all in all, this camera is a good option if you want something quick and convenient to carry daily while still retaining mirrorless features/quality.
