The compact camera that makes you forget you DSLR
Mar 31, 2013

I'm an ex Nikon dSLR user and I don't feel I've lost in the switch to the NEX-6. This camera has all the expert features you need. Basically you lose in AF speed, mainly in low light condition, (it is the case with all the mirrorless, including the over-hyped Olympus ones) and in menus usability (this is common to all Nex's) but the custom menu and Fn button are almost compensating for this weakness. But, the gain of compactness largely justifies the switch. I highly recommend the compact 16-50 kit lens that is so small and very capable, combined with the excellent 35mm F/1.8
