The viewfinder has been more handy than I thought, I find myself looking through for better focus and especially in brighter lit areas.

I was used to the 5, still own it actually, but when I first held the 6 I quickly noticed the better quality feel to it, not as plasticky when turning the power knob as well as the sound the shutter makes...the 6 sounds a little more DSLR-like and I prefer the better grip.

The 5r with a 20mm or 16mm lens will be a lot more pocketable if that matters, I bought the rx100 yesterday to solve this problem. You'd get away with it on the 5 style body.

I also like the flash on the 6, it's ALWAYS available versus bringing it along.
