Well, just keep repeating that we should be comparing NEX with APS-C sensors to DSLRs with FF sensor, as they are comparable, and you will be doing your job.

My job is using the cameras, not discussing them. I'm typing now as a hobby, not a job.

Perhaps it is "English" that is getting in the way. Don't worry about your real job. We're discussing photography in a photography forum.

My real job is photography, seems relevant.

Figure out first whether you would like to discuss that as well. Personally, I'm not interested in it. Make your points as a contributor to a discussion forum on photography.

So you don't believe it's relevant to talk about one's experience? So why then do you talk about your experience studying the development of the NEX system? A person's experience in something is an important way to evaluate the quality of information being provided.

Your arguments should be a reflection of your experience. It is why I'd asked you to post action/sports shots for a specific condition earlier, since you were arguing about it. But you returned with an excuse that you don't do that, even with DSLR.

You also took offense to use of word "job" earlier and went on talking about "English", when it had nothing to do with your profession but simply contribution to a discussion forum.

I'm not avoiding that argument, I'm saying it's foolhardy. We're talking about what's most versatile, not whether an APS-C NEX is more versatile than an APS-C dSLR. That's the argument YOU keep repeating ad nauseum but isn't really relevant to the discussion of overall versatility.

Correct, we ARE talking about versatility. And if I haven't made it clear in nearly half dozen posts, let me try again: my pick would be a NEX-6 today, simply because it is capable of being the Jack of All Trades but master of none.

I understood that long ago. Just as my position seems like it should be clear too. I'd choose a D4 because it is capable of being an even better jack of all trades and master of a few as well!

I won't be surprised if you would. But then, since you may never take it to places I take my camera, it is logical to assume you may never encounter a variety of situations where it will be nothing but a nuisance.

I don't shoot sports, dSLR or otherwise.

It only makes your previous argument meaningless.

My previous argument about what, exactly?

About your inability to use NEX system for action/sports.
