    Got at last to try my new toy, used it with the crappy kit lens the 16-50mm and I must say I am TOTALLY in love with the power of this camera, the sensor is great, impressive low light performance and the dynamic range is amazing!
    It just walks all over the Panasonic G7 I had before, just different league.
    Here is a picture example of the power of this camera

    Well to be honest the A9 is impressive but the lenses of Sony are so expensive and to be honest most of the A9 features are an overkill for me, being a wedding photographer I hardly need a huge buffer and 20FPS
    Nope I am with Nikon for now and hope they start moving to mirrorless soon, too much invested in their glass already to jump ship.

    I've never been impressed with the images of the a6300. I got it more for it's fantastic video.

    Get an adapter and put your Nikon glass on the Sony.

    For what it is, it's a pretty decent sensor, and the a6300 is supposedly better than my a6000:

    this design allows for more light, all things being equal. I just wish they were 14-bit RAW files, not 12-bit, for more processing power.

    "Pretty decent" and "better than the a6000" still ain't gonna cut it for my work.

    stop shooting with the soft $100 stock lens then? The sensor itself can rival anything else comparative on the market.

    It's not the softness of the lens. It's the images look noisy and grainy even at ISO 100... even when using my Nikkors.

    Sorry, but the sky in your photo has some serious image quality issues in my opinion. It looks like noise and even some banding. On my cell phone screen it looks okay, but on a big computer monitor, it is obviously not a great image.

    I have had noise with my Nikon D7200 on night shots, but never on a daylight photo.

    The camera may be great, but that image does not show it.

    So far I am very impressed with the low light of my a6300
