AAs are more practical IMO - you can keep a 2nd set of rechargeables and never run out of battery, plus like I said above you can find them everywhere. But I'd trade them off for other features if...

The a6000 would be nice, but I'm not in the US and it costs about $800 where I live, so it's out of my budget.
