I'm a professional real-estate photographer and looked into the 10-18 over Christmas (i have the 5n but would have bought the 6 at the same time) it seems good BUT

1. lightroom/ACR currently has no correction module for it, making getting things straight an issue

2. On the 5n you'll need a hot shoe adapter so you can fire enough flash to light a room - mine is good BUT...

3. the NEX-6 for some STUPID reason won't let you use the top dial to change the shutter speed in manual - i'll admit this is more an annoyance as i'm used to canon gear, but seriously, you can't customize the main dial?????? not having this makes manual bracketing alot slower (and realestate agents are always in a hurry...)

when lightroom adds support for this lens i'll take another look at it - but for workflow in architecture/realestate it'll cause issues.
