nex-6 PDAF worth the upgrade?
Nov 12, 2012

so far people have been praising the nex-6's hybrid PDAF but how does it compare to it's mirriorless contemporaries like the fuji/samsung/the new cannon EOSM?  I'm also curious to know if the focus the on par with the OM-D e-m5.

another concern i have is the need for firmware support to use PDAF, which means our beloved sigma E-mounts will probably not be supported (why would sony want to support a 3rd party lens manf.)

also I think the whole wifi thing is a just a gimmick, at first the remote control functionality from your phone seems really cool, but if I'm not mistaken, that's only supported if the phone and cam are on the same wifi network.  So basically to me that's useless in the field, where are u going to find a wifi hotspot? when let's say inside a volcano
