Compact. Powerful. Reliable.

I consider myself a beginner in photography. I would highly recommend this this camera to people who may want to do some casual photography, and may even plan to develop it further as a hobby later on.
The biggest negatives will be battery life, low resolution electronic viewfinder, and lack of in-body image stabilization.
Update 1: Lens recommendations
After using the camera for a while, I got a Sigma 16 mm f/1.4 prime lens for it.The image quality and bokeh rendering is just outstanding. The large aperture makes it a great lens for low light situations. The 16mm focal does seem a bit too wide at times though.
If you want a good everyday lens to pair up with A6000, I would recommend a the SEL 35 mm f/1.8 lens as it has in-built stabilization which Sony calls SteadyShot, a large aperture for achieving the desirable background blur and better low light performance.
Update #2: Adapting vintage lenses to save a ton of money.
Mirrorless cameras can be used with all kinds of legacy lenses due to the shorter flange distance. I have recently bought a Pentax Takumar 50mm f/1.4 and I am amazed at the image quality. All you need is an M42 screw mount to NEX mount adapter. For old Canon lenses you may use FD to NEX, and many others.
