Excerpt: It's been more than three years since Sony entered the mirrorless camera race with its NEX-3 and NEX-5. Since then, Sony has expanded its NEX-series with the NEX-7 occupying the top position, with the 16 megapixel NEX-6 next in line.
Summary: NEX-6 Review Summary : Squeezing into Sony's compact system camera lineup between the acclaimed NEX-7 and the NEX-5R, the NEX-6 stands on its own as a high-performing hybrid -- marrying exceptional speed and image quality with more consumer-friendly features and controls. While it gets a bump down in resolution compared to the NEX-7, the 16.1-megapixel APS-C sensor still delivers photos with sharp detail and good color, contrast and exposure.
Pros: Pros : Very good image quality; More consumer-friendly control setup than NEX-7 but more advanced (actual Mode dial) than step-down models; OLED EVF and 3-inch tilting LCD monitor provide viewfinder flexibility; Fast and decisive AF on stationary subjects, and good continuous AF on normal moving subjects; Full HD 1080p video recording at up to 60p.
Cons: Cons : Hybrid AF system speed and accuracy still lags somewhat behind higher-end DSLRs; Wi-Fi features still rudimentary (join the club); LCD is not a touchscreen; User interface foibles.
Summary: , with the large and bright viewfinder giving it a significant advantage over its viewfinder-less rivals. At a slightly lower price NEX-7, but with a similar feature set, it's also good value for money if you envisage using the viewfinder and/or the flip-out LCD - otherwise, there are slightly cheaper comparable options.
Summary: The Sony Alpha NEX-6 is the latest evolution in the NEX line of mirrorless compact system cameras. Though it sits below the flagship 24.3 Megapixel NEX-7, this 16.1 Megapixel model incorporates many of the more expensive model's features, including the industry-leading 2.3 million pixel OLED electronic viewfinder and 3 inch articulated 921k pixel LCD screen.
Pros: Hybrid AF with phase and contrast detect., 2.3 million dot EVF., 10fps burst mode with continuous AF., Wi-Fi enabled with picture sharing, remote control and downloadable apps., Compact lightweight powered kit zoom.
Cons: Lack of touch screen., Poor AF performance in low light., Movie button difficult to press and not programmable.
It doesn't look like a pro-level camera, but can it work like one?

Summary: Sony's NEX lineup is kind of a microcosm of the camera industry in 2012. Once you graduate from a point-and-shoot up to a mirrorless camera or a DSLR, odds are good that you're going to get a camera that takes great pictures. What you're paying for within the market is resolution, low-light performance, and controls.
Pros: Excellent, powerful controls, Great images and video, Small body is still easy to use
Cons: Wi-Fi is effectively useless, Lens ecosystem still lags competition
Summary: The Sony NEX-6 mixes high-end build quality and control with a consumer-friendly feature set. The inclusion of Wi-Fi connectivity opens up the NEX-6 for a number of in-camera editing controls and direct image sharing.
All in all, the Sony NEX-6 handles well and produces excellent images, but not quite to the same standard as the NEX-7.
