Nex-6 rocks !!!
7 months ago
Other than that it takes time to update the FW on all supported lenses and download/install all the apps, the Nex-6 has impressed me so far.
Focusing is faster, and PDAF does work better than the AF on previous Nex, but I have to experiment more to make a quantitative judgement.
Also, the 1650PZ is not as bad as people suggested, at least not in the sample shots I have tried so far.
Below a few shots taken with the Sony E 16mm with 12mm UWA adapter and the (WA RF) Cosina Voigtlander 21mm. All in JPG, corrections on for the E16.
The E16 images are wide open (f2.8) with the UWA attached, and the images are quite clean, imho. Only the very far corners are smeared. I never would use the f2.8 - I keep it above f/4.0 for cleaner results, but am pleased with the Nex-6 results.
The CV21 also impresses -almost no vignetting, no color shift, very clear images, sharp edges (relative to prior Nex's). (Mind you, this lens is unusuable on the Nex-7, but works fine on the Nex-5N).
See the sample shots below, taken with and against the sun around noon today. I was merely interested in vignetting, and pleased with the 16mm + UWA results.The Nex-6 does quite well.
The CV21 results are still smeared, but I think that is because of missed focus and perhaps camera movement. Will spend more time on weekend (it is dark now).
Please note that the CV21 pictures were done using focus peaking, and appear a bit sloppy.
