It all comes down to the manual controls for me. The only real advantage the 6 has over the 7 is that it works better with certain WA lenses, which is something about which you may or may not care (the two Sigmas work equally well with both cameras). If you value manual control, the 7 is the only real choice...but if you've got, say, a CV 15mm lying around and are dying to use it, you might want to think about the 6. Lots of folks will argue that the NEX-7's high ISO performance is worse, but the difference is much, much smaller than it's made out to be.

I guess it also depends on whether or not you want the kit lens (which I consider to be pretty sub-par...I know there are those who disagree). A used NEX-7 with the kit lens will probably set you back about $100 more than the equivalent NEX-6 setup.
