Sony A5000 Review : Sensor Performance and Test Results
Sony A5000 vs. NEX-5T vs. A3000 comparison
From DxOMark Conclusion:
Although the A5000 isn’t quite the replacement for the NEX-5T as it appears, and is unlikely to be tempting enough for enthusiasts, the sensor at least is a very good performer. Although it lacks the on-chip PD-AF pixels required for faster autofocus of the older 16-Mpix sensor in the NEX-5T, it concedes nothing in IQ while the higher pixel count is promising. At around $499 it doesn’t look overpriced.
