Your pics are just amazing! i love all of them!

This encourage me buying this new great NEX6 camera, anyway, i'm affraid the quality of our pics have a lot to do with the talent of the photographer and not only the capacity of the camera!

I had no doubt about the quality of the NEX-6 body as all NEX camera are yet great cameras and NEX-6 just bring some very interesting improvements.

But can you tell us more about the quality of the 16-50mm kit lense? How does it compare with the former 18-55 kit lense? what about resolution, corners, etc...

Could you also try the CIZ (clear image zoom), that could alow to compensate the low tele focal lengh of the cam?

Could you also test video feature? did Sony correct the "warming" problem of former NEX cams (camera stop working after a few minutes when the wheather is too hot)?


Overall, the 16-50mm OSS lens is a great kit lens to be with the camera at all time for most shootings. I have shot many images with it and sold my 18-55mm to buy this new lens. So yes it is nice, no vignetting on corners sharp at all aperture but extreme sharp at F/8.0. The resolving power is okay as far as I can see and pixel peeping. But you gotta know it is still a kit lens, but a great kit lens.

The quality of the NEX-6 has a lot of improvements, Sony has incorporate the goods from NEX-5, 5N and NEX-7 into this one with additional new features:

- Better HDR bracketing

- Wifi

- Hybrid AF

- New Flash hotshoe
