Summary: The NEX-6 is a bit of a disappointment. I had higher expectations from an aps-c camera. Particularly due to the glowing online reviews. I took similar pictures on the same day under the same conditions, with an Olympus e-pl5, Sony rx10, Lumix Fz200, and Sony rx100.
Excerpt: This is a critical review. This mirror-less camera has a huge size and weight advantage and can capture great photos, but serious issues need to be considered when buying and using this camera. Bought brand new in March 2014. Presented Lens communication errors by May 2014.
Agree, to many uselss pieces that make it appear this is a good deal

Summary: I love the camera but the reviewer who said their were toy many useless pieces hit it on the money. the things I would like to say about this deal are not allowed in a review, according to the guidelines Suffice it to say the 2 additional lens ( not the long lens) are useless.
Summary: The kit lens isn't impressive. You would think with that price range, the kit lens should perform better, but it doesn't and that bugs me UPDATE: 11/30/2013 After using the camera for a couple of months, I want to say that I am so far happy from its performance, especially for low light situations.
Summary: Before I begin, let it be known that I come from the DSLR world, I'm what most people would consider a "pro-consumer" or serious enthusiast, I've owned many pro-grade cameras, my last one was the Canon 5Dmk3, which cleaned out my bank account along with some L lenses, I love the 5Dmk3, and I know...
Summary: Since everyone's needs and expectations from a camera are different, a word about who I am. I'm what one might call a photography enthusiast. I bought my first digital camera (a 1 megapixel HP Photosmart C30, which I find absolutely hilarious now) in 1998 and my first DSLR (a Canon EOS-D60) in 2002.
Pancake zoom failed within 4 months, but body is great
4 June 2013
Summary: I bought this, along with the 35mm f/1.8 lens. I mostly used the 35mm, as the pancake zoom seems to be a little buggy. First of all, it takes a while to startup, as it seems to need to go through the focal range first before allowing me to use it.
