As 'snapshots', the PDAF based Nex-6 is easier, you can use multi-focus, face-detect, tracking, etc. all on, whereas on the CDAF based Nex-7 you would use center-focus lock + reframe to assure focus.

I'm not sure I understand what you're saying here. I recently bought the 35/1.8 as my first autofocus lens for my Nex 7 for taking snapshots (mostly of my young daughter). I almost only use face detect AF and it's working great.

Why are you saying you wouldn't use face detect AF with the Nex 7?
