    Sony a6000 Broken viewfinder glass

    Any updates to this post? Did you send it to Sony?
  2. Another vote for David Busch's excellent book, and very affordable at $27. It will answer all your questions and is far better and helpful than the Sony manual. https://www.amazon.com/David-Buschs-ILCE-6000-Digital-Photography/dp/1681981904/ref=sr_1_1_atc_badge_A2N1U4I2KOS032_twi_pap_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1548522771&sr=1-1&keywords=a6000+book+david+busch
  3. I agree with those who recommend the Sony 18-105 mm. It's an excellent lens with an equivalent reach of around 150 mm. An even better choice would be the Sony 18-135 mm that would give you an equivalent reach of around 200 mm. It is also lighter and smaller than the 18-105. Both are priced around $500-$600.

    A6000 Choosing Kit Lens

    Another vote for the excellent Sony 18-135. You might have to stretch your budget a little bit but you won't regret it. It's a superb little lens that is lightweight , compact, and has excellent reviews. It stays on my A6000 permanently.
  5. Try using AUTO ISO and increase your speed to at least 1/125 for your handheld shots and see it that doesn't show improvement.

    Help Fixing Soft Focus Issues

    The 4 photos I looked at in your link were very sharp on my laptop. I think your focus mode is doing a fine job. What are you viewing them on? And welcome to the forum and Happy New Year.

    Hint from David Busch: Leave "Pre AF" OFF (default setting). David Busch says leaving Pre-Auto Focus On will deplete your battery much faster because auto focus will be ON even before you press the shutter button half-way down. Also leave Airplane Mode ON. That will help a little.

    Battery Keeps Draining

    Turn Airplane Mode ON and leave it ON. That should help a little. Also a good tip from David Busch: Leave "Pre AF" OFF (default setting). David Busch says leaving Pre-Auto Focus On will deplete your battery much faster because auto focus will be ON even before you press the shutter button half-way down.

    Battery Keeps Draining A6000

    From what I've read on other forums you will have the same problem with the A6300/A6500 cameras as you have with the A6000. I keep the Airplane Mode ON on my Sony's as you do and I always carry a spare battery or two in my bag. Wish I could help you more. If you find a solution please post it here.

    New to mirrorless - Sony a6000 or a6300?

    The A6000 is one of the best bargains around at the current price point. It's really not worth the price differential to upgrade to the A6300 for me. I have 2 A6000's now and live in the South and have no problems requiring a weather sealed camera. If I worked on a fishing boat it might be worthwhile, but on dry land it has not been needed.

    Turning on Airplane Mode will help significantly in preventing battery discharging when off. Hopefully you also ordered the Wasabi Charger when you ordered the batteries. It works very quickly, usually about 45 minutes or less to a full charge. Much quicker then in-camera charging.
