I have been using the Nex 6 with the 15 to 50mm zoom lens for a few months now, but I have found that all the images are just mushy and lack critical sharpness! I am very disapointed.

I used to have a Canon 7d and when I compare these images the Nex 6 doesnt look good while the 7d is pin sharp, but when I use the dpreview comparison page if anything the opposite should be true. I am using jpeg images straight off the camera.

Is it the camera, lens, or do I have a faulty camera?

Impossible to know without seeing example images. Could be the lens, could be the camera, could be you.

What we can tell you is that, generically, the camera and kit lens produce images as sharp or sharper than with a 7d. If you go to the dpreview and look at the tests, you'll see we can rule out the camera and lens, if both are sound.
