CSC : Digital Compact System Cameras - This new category of digital Compact System Cameras with interchangeable lenses was mislabeled for a time as "Mirrorless Cameras" by those forgetting about "Mirrorless" Rangefinder cameras.  Such confusion is easily understandable, since interchangeable rangefinder cameras were only recently introduced in 1932.  hmm.    CSC or Compact System Camera is probably the best category description to date, although I am fond of the old RFF desigation of  CEVIL  indicating Compact Electronic Viewfidner Interchangeable Lens.   This forum is here at RFF because via adapters these cameras offer an inexpensive way to use rangefinder lenses on digital cameras -- in addition of just about every 35mm SLR lens you can think of.  All  offer the photo enthusiast an incredible array of adopted lenses which was not possible before these new digital formats.   This group continues to grow in popularity and new camera models!

I can't show a portrait but here is a flower shot with a Jupiter-9 contax mount used on my Nikon D3300, which is almost the same sensor as your A6000. The J9 would be good for low-contrast and soft bokeh type photos.

8.5cm Steinheil Culminar in LTM on the Fuji XT1. Not the sharpest lens in the world, in fact, this one has quite a bit of haze and dust, but I love the rendering.

Fuji X Pro 1,XT 1and XF1 cameras and lenses.
Sony RX1
Leica M6 with black Wetzlar 50mm
A pair of Barnack Anniversary cameras
Who knows how many others

Canon 85/1.5 on an old model E-P2 Olympus M 4/3 camera. The sensor is smaller than an APC sensor.
