NEX-6 lens blackout/reset bug
Jan 29, 2013

Other forum members, including me[1], have experienced the following problem with the NEX-6 and several different lenses:

Every once in a while, the NEX-6's screen will go dark and the camera stops responding. The shutter and aperture are temporarily displayed as "--" on the screen. A couple of seconds later the screen brightens up with everything out of focus, and then everything goes back to normal.

One gets the impression that the lens is resetting, and the NEX-6 is unable read these settings off the lens for a couple of seconds until the lens is ready again.

Has anyone else experienced this same problem? Please respond to this thread so that Sony can see these are not isolated instances. Thanks!


Sony Alpha NEX-6
