Here’s a selection of (admittedly “meh”) photos I’ve taken

While not the best, the provided kit lens (SELP1650) isn’t as bad as the reviews make it out to be. I’ve found it to be suprisingly versitile in a range of different shooting-styles and the quality is certainly acceptable, at least for me (I’m hardly a pixel-peeper), and I think it makes more sense to get the camera including it, just to get you started. I do recommend you pick up a decent telephoto lens later down the line though, if you feel constrained by 50mm.
Battery life is, again, a lot better than the reviews have made it out to be. I’m the type of person that always switches the camera off if I’m not activly planning to take a photo, so bear that in mind - no “standby” tests here. I’ve frequently taken the camera on day-long trecks and the battery only loses about 70% charge, even when taking hundreds of shots.
Overall, I think the a6000, despite being a few years old, is certainly still a good mirrorless option if you’re shopping for cameras. The feature list is substantial while being easy-to-operate, allowing the camera to appeal to a broad audience - from total beginners to semi-pro hobbyists; the kit lens is a good starting point, offering acceptable quality and a useful range and the quality is certainly there.
