    Hi,

    I'm an amateur photographer and was looking into mirrorless cameras. The reviews and price were great for the sony a6000, so I bought an open box on best buy today.

    I'm not sure if I made the best decision...
    - is $600 total worth it for an open-box best buy a6000?
    - are there are other affordable mirrorless cameras that are better?

    Please reply asap - I am going on a trip to Cuba next week and would like to make a purchase ASAP.

    Thanks.

    Hey ahmeds.

    How did your trip go, photographically speaking?

    I was in a similar situation sometime ago. I had been using DSLR's for a while but they (and the lens bag) don't travel particularly well. So I decided I'd like to try a mirrorless as a travel alternative but since it was going to be an experiment I didn't want to break the bank. I settled on the NEX 5R.

    Used it with the kit lenses for a little while, then discovered the mirrorless body opens up a whole new world of re-purposing old film lenses. So the experimenting continues.

    I think you got a great "gun" for a good price. It's probably the best (or very near to it, at least) you're going to do as far as APS-C is concerned.

    Can you share some of your shots from the trip?
