AFAIK (NEX 6 owner), the 6000 has the new MIS hot shoe, and is not compatible with many of the flashes on the above list - unless you want to shoot manual flash.

If you want TTL, the Sony HVL-F20M, HVL-F43M or HVL-F60M will work - see this link:

However, rumor has it that Nissin is releasing a version of their i40 for the MIS hot shoe at the end of July.

My personal take is that the F20M is an awkward design, the F43 looks OK and the F60 is huge on a mirrorless camera. I am waiting for the i40.
