Upgrade advice for Sony NEX5T

I'm looking to upgrade my Sony NEX5T and have been keeping an eye on Sony's A6000 model. The price in the UK for body only has dropped to �360 which I think is very good value for money. But, is this the best option to go for? My budget is �400 and the camera must have a built-in EVF. Any advice and recommendations greatly received! Wink

I've seen A7 sell for 600-700 euro. One could perhaps be had for less. Are you interested in full frame at all? Could you stretch the budget a bit?

I went from NEX5 to A6000 and never regretted it, the A6000 is a great camera, and the prices are really good now.

I have a Canon 5DMKII for full frame but I'm looking for a smallish APS-C for when I want to travel light.

If you have full frame covered with the Canon, then I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the A6000, ( which I already have ) it really is the logical upgrade from the NEX 5R. It has similar controls and extra features. And a very good kit lens.we

Even the A5000 would be an upgrade in terms of sensor . A6000 is very good . Maybe you can find a nex 6 at discounted price?

How about Fuji X-T10? Or are you tied to using certain lenses and MF lens adapters?
Prices are dropping all the time, especially coming up to Christmas. I am sure you will find a bargain soon.

Thanks everyone for your replies, much appreciated.

I've decided on the Sony Alpha A6000. I've ordered a new body (as I already have the 16-50mm kit lens) and I paid 323 incl postage which I think is excellent value for money especially when you consider what it cost when first introduced. Very Happy
