Answer:
Yes. The alpha6000 does not have built-in "sensor-shifting" image stabilization. This means if you want image stabilization it must be included in the lens. I think the Sony advertises this as Optical SteadyShot or having OSS technology.

As an aside, it is more difficult to implement built-in image stabilization into cameras with large sensors without greatly increasing the body size, because the distance the sensor would need to travel for the stabilization effect increases with its size. I think this is why Sony is choosing to keep stabilization in the lens. see less

Answer:
Questions like yours are always difficult to answer, because of factors like brand loyalty and that there are so many variables it is difficult to be comprehensive or objective. However, since I am going to buy the a6000 I'll give you my two cents.

Questions like yours are always difficult to answer, because of factors like brand loyalty and that there are so many variables it is difficult to be comprehensive or objective. However, since I am going to buy the a6000 I'll give you my two cents.
I think the a6000 is the superior camera in at least these 4 categories:
1. Sensor quality. Check out dxomark.com to see their sensor scores for the two cameras. The a6000 is a clear winner by their tests. I just like the larger sensor, APS-C, that Sony uses over the micro-four-thirds size the Olympus uses. The downside is that Sony does not have as many lenses as Olympus, so if you already have a micro-four-thirds collection then maybe Sony isn't a good choice, but if you are starting from scratch then I think the Sony sensor is better. It has more pixels and greater sensitivity and it is physically larger, so the greater number of pixels does not necessarily mean less light per pixel.
2. Electronic View Finder Location: The EVF for the OLYMPUS EM10 is right in the middle of the camera which means half the camera is going to be smashing into my nose whenever I look through it. The a6000 has the EVF on the left side, so when I look through my right eye I will not have a smashed nose.
3. Better autofocus and faster capture speed: the a6000 does 11fps with active focus for each frame. Olympus does 3.5 fps with active focus for each frame.
4. Cool apps. I like that Sony is into pairing their cameras with smartphones and you can download apps for the camera. For example there is a time-lapse I'm interested in trying out.
If this isn't enough to convince you to buy the a6000 I'd recommend googling for a6000 reviews, because there are some very thorough reviews out there. Also, you might want to ask this question on the black color version of this camera, because there is a longer list of questions there that might indicate more web traffic.
Goodluck! see less

Answer:
Yes, this is the successor to the NEX 6 and 7, at least for the time being. There is no A7000 or higher model currently publicly announced, and while there could be in the future, it is merely speculation at this point. If you are looking to upgrade your NEX 7 now, this is the model.

Answer:
Its a digital level displayed on screen to aid it keeping the camera level with horizons especially useful for landscape photography. While most recent Sony cameras have this feature it is surprisingly absent from the a6000. It is unknown if the limitation is hardware or software based at this time as Sony isn't commenting.

Answer:
It is an e-mount frame. So any lenses that are e-mount will be just fine. A-mount lenses will work too with an adapter.

Answer:
At a similar kit price point the em-10 and gx-7 (goes for 850 frequently) are the others I'm considering. Pros for them in body image stabilization and lens selection (because they are m43 platform). Pro for a6000 just about everything else imo.

Pros for them in body image stabilization and lens selection (because they are m43 platform). Pro for a6000 just about everything else imo. The a6000 already has the lens lineup for what I care about most and I can just adapt some old manual lenses for the rest if I care to (same for m43) so that is what I'm heavily leaning towards. Really would prefer the silver, however. see less At a similar kit price point the em-10 and gx-7 (goes for 850 frequently) are the others I'm considering.

Answer:
By default it has a wall plug that does in Camera Charging Only. I purchased a Wasabi External Charger with 2 extra batteries to have an external charger. I think the 2 batteries and the charger with a extra bits (cigarette lighter plug and 240V adapter) was around $20.
