Excerpt: I purchased this camera on sale as an upgrade from my Sony A65. I was a bit frustrated by the lack of optically stabilized lenses available for Sony's A-mount cameras. Most of Sony's E-mount lenses have optical stabilization (OSS) which I believe yields better hand-held video than the in-camera digital stabilization the A-mount cameras have.
Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Good Image Quality
Excerpt: I upgraded from the NEX-5. I love the EVF and the wifi. If I could suggest one improvement it would be the on-off switch. The design on the NEX-5 was much better; easier to turn the camera on and off.
Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD
Excellent DSLR-like quality in a small and durable package.

Summary: The Sony NEX-6 is an excellent camera for any photo enthusiast looking for great image quality and a compact design. While I have used DSLR's, they are a burden to carry around and to transport, and this camera definitely solves that problem. It is excellent for street photography and still photography alike, and it suits me for the type of shots I take: street shots, architectural details, photos of my artworks/designs, landscapes.
Either buy it, or go full frame. Best. Compact. Ever?

Summary: If you are leaning towards this camera at all, just buy it. There's a reason it's the number 1 seller in compact system cameras. because it's the best bang for your buck. The ONLY features missing from this camera or reasons to hesitate are: *touch screen: once you set up the custom buttons and function menu, you won't ever have to dive into the menu to get at settings, so we're good *fully articulating screen: either a 180 degree flip up or pop out and twist screen...
Excerpt: With many years of still film photography under my belt, but a 10 year hiatus from any shooting, I think the NEX6 was a good choice. Being use to using top quality equipment, the NEX6 did not feel like a step down. Learning the differences and capabilities of digital shooting is almost painless! A good choice indeed.
Perfect compact digital camera for quality picture taking, but you will have to tolerate the poor interface for some features

Summary: This was the camera I waited for based on research. I wanted small, high quality, lens changing, and an eye piece. I wanted it for around $500, so when the price dropped, I could no longer resist. I was on the fence for awhile because I rely on my iphone for so many photo opportunities, but the phone does not do well indoors, with poor light, and under most circumstances other than good light, slow action, no zooming, outside.
