having owned both 5N & 7, I beg to differ. with the sensor debate. the 16MP sensor on 5N performs better in terms of low light performance - that is all. The NEX-7 sensor does better in everything else (color depth, dynamic range). Another reason why the NEX-7 sensor gets undermined a lot is because many of the current E-mount lens just aren't good enough for it, exposing each lens' weakness. Just attach the Zeiss 24mm on 5N, then on 7, and you'll see that the NEX-7 sensor is made for high end lenses.

as for NEX-6, Sony made it with 16MP because it wants to make a statement that the 7 is a class higher than 6. However many people do desire high ISO performance, which is important, so it gets high demand as well.

that being said, I would put my vote on NEX-6 with the 16-50PZ lens as well. it's hard to beat for the cost/performance ratio!
