    We just got back from our first trip after I got my A6000.

    I'm still not 100% sold on the camera. It feels a lot more plasticy than my RX100(m2), and of course it's significantly larger.
    I'm missing the virtual horizon and I wish for a zoom lens that's better than the 16-50 but smaller than the 16-70. Guess you can't have it all :)
    But I'm happy with the pictures, I can definetely tell the A6000 has better resolution and dynamic range.

    The city itself is very scenic, the old part of the town is very well preserved, and there's a lot of good cafes and restaurents. Definetely a good place to visit, even if you're not looking for beaches and sand which is what Mallorca is most known for.

    This was the view from our hotel room over the harbour, loved the rays of sunlight filtering through the clouds.

    Nice shots, too long since I was in Majorca - must rectify that soon.
