Really need a new travel camera as my Canon G12 is long in the tooth. I was thinking the Sony NEX 6 might be the best compact APS-C camera to buy for travel purposes.

I don't put too much faith on professional reviews and take them with a grain of salt. And to me, NEX-6 might be more than the best APS-C camera for travel purposes. It can technically replace a DSLR and a compact camera at the same time. In fact, one of the first things I did after getting a NEX-3 was give away my pocket camera. And using NEX-3 with EA2 for sports/action works fine. And that is NEX-3! I refuse to believe that NEX-3 beats NEX-6.

Take a look at these images, taken with two cameras (Sony SLT-A55 and Sony NEX-3). Even I have to look at EXIF to figure out (linked from Flickr, so it may not be visible). Only one of them was taken with A55, all others are NEX-3. Can you point the odd one out?
