Update (03/02, 10:45am): Additional images added to the Gallery Page.

Our intrepid reviewer Jeremy Gray could be sitting back and relaxing in South Beach, but instead he's hard at work shooting with the brand new Sony A6300 and a bevy of fancy Sony lenses -- including two of the new G Master lenses. Jeremy is down in Miami this week getting an in-depth look at the new and improved A6000 successor, and we have an initial batch of real-world gallery images for your perusal.

Though there's only a handful of images so far, they do provide a look at the camera's image quality in both daylight and nighttime settings, and at both low and high ISOs, including the new maximum expanded ISO of 51,200. Jeremy also provided a few shots with RAW+JPEG pairs. Be sure to watch this space as we update the Sony A6300 Gallery Page with more real-world images as we get them.

Underneath the A6300's altogether familiar exterior sits an all-new 24MP APS-C CMOS sensor. And while that's the same resolution as the A6000 predecessor, this new sensor uses copper wiring in its circuitry, which should offer better readout performance as well as an improved signal-to-noise ratio for better high ISO performance.

Speed and sheer nimbleness is a hallmark feature of the A6300, as well. The A6300 offers a fast 11fps burst with C-AF, a new 8fps mode with a simulated DSLR-like "blackout" behavior for better subject tracking with the EVF, and a healthy buffer capacity of 44 large / extra fine JPEG frames or 21 raw / raw+JPEG frames (according to Sony's specs). Furthermore, the AF capabilities are said to be top-notch, too, with a total of 425 phase-detect autofocus points -- the most PDAF points of any camera to date. Plus, Sony claims an AF speed of just 0.05s, so the A6300 shouldn't leave you hanging with any missed opportunities.
