I find the 1/8-inch "MIC OUT" to be suspicious and peculiar.  In the worst case, that's the only output this unit gives, relying upon a 1/8-inch microphone input that the NEX-6 lacks (but the NEX-7 has).  I doubt, though, that they'd picture the two together without a protruding cable if they're not directly compatible.  Then, you're left with wondering what value the separate output brings (unless they did that for the like of the NEX-7 which doesn't have the new shoe mount, but could use a "dumb" adapter).
