The A5000 is 20 megapixels, is very compact, with no viewfinder, but it has a pop-up flash and a fold-out 3 inch screen. It is available with a 16-50mm lens today at B&H in the U.S.A. for $500.
The A6000 is 24 megapixels, like the NEX 7, but costs less than the NEX 7.
Apparently it has a very fast auto-focus system and can shoot at up to 11 fps. It has a 1,440,000 dot OLED EVF (lower resolution than the NEX 6 viewfinder) and like other Sony mirrorless system cameras it lacks built-in image stabilization.
It's available now at B&H in the U.S.A. for pre-order, and it comes with a 16-50mm lens for $800.
These new Sony cameras are all 14 bit, rather than 12 bit, like the NEX system cameras. They also have wi-fi, but for some reason Sony does not put GPS in their mirrorless cameras.
