Default Nikon and Sony

I have a D7000 and D7100 with various lenses. Looked at a d750 at BH and really liked it but the I came across the video.

What do you think?

I hate using my IPad for placing links at it never pastes them as a link.

Anyway any opinions on what this guy is saying will be interesting.

Thanks

Since Nikon buys most of its sensors from Sony, there must be something other than the sensors that distinguishes them.

And there is.

While Sony's E-Mount cameras are smaller, lighter, and cheaper, their lenses are often bigger, heavier, and more expensive. And, more important, they're often not as good.

The short flange focal length (the distance between the lens mount and the sensor) means that E-Mount lenses have to bend light more in order to project an image over the entire sensor, which means they are more prone to transverse chromatic aberration, distortion, field curvature (soft corners), and vignetting. That's not to say that those are insurmountable problems, but to surmount those problems requires bigger, heavier, more expensive lenses.

Interesting video.... and much of what he says has merit....
The A6000 is a great little camera... and if it had more affordable/compatible lenses it'd be quite a compelling alternative to a similarly priced DSLR... especially if you wouldn't be shooting long and wanted to remain discreet...
