Traded in my RX10 which is a super piece of kit, for an a6000/50 1.8 This one was taken with an adapted Nikkor-P 105 2.5 I picked up for $89.00

Happy!
i've got one coming soon as well, along with the SEL35 1.8, and 501.8. The GR gives me the 28fov. If I find that the A6000 is a good fit, then I'll probably have to sell either my NX 20 or 300, most likely the NX20. I tested a friends and I am quite satisfied with the EVF quality but YMMV. :)
Enjoy your new camera, I enjoyed your RX10 pics.

Trying out my Sigma 500mm f8 XQ mirror lens on the Sony a6000, picked up today for about $89.00. Hoped for a moonrise over the mountains but the clouds were too low on the horizon. Happened to be up at 2:00 and it was fairly clear, however my hopes were ultimately dashed as there are no mice to be seen...

Well, as one is apt to do these days... I was very happy with the a6000 and the Zeiss 55 1.8 and the 24 1.8. Too good of a deal on a used a7 so I swapped the 24 and 6000 for that. The 55 is even better on the a7 and it's actually 55mm which is perfect for me. Feeling very happy, its 's close to my M9/Summilux in IQ and fun as I've had since I sadly sold them.

Been toying with mirrorless for years - m43 three times, Nikon V1 and I think the A6000 is going to be the one (until the next ONE comes out)

I just sold a D7000 and my Nikon V1 kit to fund an A6000 and the Sigma trio of lenses. I believe the A6000 will offer all the performance and quality (or more) of the D7000 with the size advantage of m43 (owned OM-D's twice and and EP-1 and Ep-2). I can't afford an EM-1 or an XT-1 or GH-4. The A6000 though hits the right price point with performance that exceeds that point.

For the price the A6000 is a great mirrorless camera and it is great to use legacy lenses with an adapter. Have fun with it.
Alas the Sigma lenses aren't able to use the fast phase or continuous AF like the SEL50F18 which I could update with a new firmware.
