I switched from the OM-D to the Nex only regret is the slower autofocus and the terrible, terrible, terrible battery life.  I have to leave the house with 2 spares!

You got bad batteries or defective camera - I am getting between 5 and 6 hundred shots with about 10% flash use on Sony battery. (or I got exceptional battery):-)

Other than that every other box is ticked.  Love the handling of ther NEX 6.  I purchased the grip for the OM-D and only used the "grip" part, not the battery part.  It killed me to know that I had to spend $250 dollars so that the camera can feel "right" in my hands.

I love the OLY colors, but the NEX 6 colors are the best looking Sony colors that I have seen to date (I had the NEX 5n and RX100).

I fyou can live with slower autofocus and can carry extra batteries the NEX 6 is a great camera.
