I have been shooting DSLRs for many years and I have been strongly considering getting a NEX for portability and casual family outings.

That's the way I use mine. Plus vacation trips.

What are do some of you experienced NEX shooters think?

Even with the a77, but especially with the NEX-6 I find the LCD to be more useful than I ever thought it would be, and I use it more than I ever thought I would, but I just couldn't get along without the EVF. It's not about ease or accuracy of focus or anything technical, it's just "normal" to have a camera stuck in my face. By the time you pay the VISA bill you won't even remember how much  extra the 6 cost, but you'll hate the 3 every time you use it.

Don't let this be you
