Touch screen is an important advantage for 5R. What are the Nex 6 advantages over 5R?

Viewfinder, handling appearing similar to the N7, dedicated mode dial.

The 6 looks like an odd duck, though, because the NEX 7 has fast navigation w/ the AF point is due to 2 NAVI dials, which the 6 does not have. And the fast navigation w/ AF point of the 5N/R series is due to touch screen. I know not all users navigate that way on 5N, but I do, and I really like the touch screen. So I am curious to see how this pans out for the 6 - will moving the AF point around be annoying?

My NEX 5N is having a mechanical issue w/ the dial, and I decided to just replace it with a new 5N & save my dough for either the 7's replacement or the next round of bodies. The broken 5N is perfect with MF lenses, so I guess it will be the dedicated parking spot for my G90.
