    I see the Sony A6000 body selling at $350-$450, and this is a moderately idle question, so please don't spend too much of your time formulating a reply.

    I have lots of vintage lenses I use on my XPro1, XE1, XA1.
    To anyone who has actually used both Fuji and Sony bodies: is manual focusing better / easier / more accurate on Sony than on Fuji ??
    As always, thanks for your time.

    Dave, I can't respond to the A6000 in particular but I use the A7II and I have used the A7 in the past and they both beat the pants off of the X Pro1. I use both the Sony and the XT1 with MF lenses and my impression is that they are nearly equal with maybe a slight edge going to the Sony as I think the focus peaking is more visible at wider apertures.

    I have had an a6000 and only used it with manual lenses. Focusing manual lenses was very easy to do , Sony has great focus peaking, and you can explore all manual focus techniques for street photography/video/action to a great effect. It also has great 1080p video. I cannot answer for Fuji, since I am about to get one now, but manual focus with the a6000 works great. I suspect that is the case with fuji for its newer generation cameras, X-E3, X-t20 etc.. Once you become proficient on focusing with manual lenses on a mirrorless camera, you will be amazed on what you can do. It is very rewarding. I presume you are not one of those "enthusiasts" that pixel peeps each photograph at 200% magnification :):)
