Sony A6300 Optics

The Sony A6300 is available body-only, or bundled with the compact Sony E 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 PZ OSS kit lens for only US$150 more. Optical performance isn't great, but it's not bad for a very compact and inexpensive kit lens. It's a good start and a great value when bought as part of the kit, but to get the most out of the Sony A6300's 24-megapixel resolution, enthusiasts will likely want to invest in some better glass.

Viewfinder Test Results

Excellent coverage from the EVF and LCD monitor.

Electronic Viewfinder
LCD Monitor

The Sony A6300's electronic viewfinder and LCD monitor both showed essentially 100% coverage in record mode in our tests. This is excellent performance, though expected given the preview is derived from the imaging sensor.
