NEX-6 a few observations
5

Some good and some bad points:

Good

Feels solid for plastic

Finish is nice

Steadyshot with the 16-50 is incredibly stable!

Very clean images

Electronic zoom with kit lens is different but works well.

Small size of kit lens when off is very welcome.

Standard shoe

Bad

Got mine with a faulty flash. Won't come out without having to press really hard on the button

Battery charging in camera only? I really hate this!

EVF is NOT the same quality as NEX7 and A99 (which I tried side by side with the NEX6)

Why is the card so close to the edge of the battery door? So hard to pull out

Prefer the metal casing of my NEX-7

No mic input

Not enough customizable buttons

Apps is a gimmick. Slow, hard to setup etc etc.

I was excited to get a connection to my phone and all the other WIFI extras but it just a pain. So much easier just to plug the sd card into my ipad and do it from there.

So I guess it might have to go back to the store. I'll get an other NEX7... just hoep they don't come out with an NEX7r in 2 months....
