I had both cameras.  You can search for my prior posts on this topic.  Having tested both I kept the OM-D.  For me the Nex-6 has far superior ergonomics and almost equivalent focusing speed on some lenses (not the 50mm which is slooow), but in the end the lack of lenses (especially long native zooms)  and the inability to customize (no way to set auto iso limit etc which I can do on my rx100 - puzzling).

If you shoot jpeg, which I do most of the time, there is very little image quality difference and in fact for me the high iso jpeg performance of the OM-D in superfine jpeg is better than the Nex-6.

Just my 2 cents.
