also this PDAF thing and autofocus in general is not the marvel I expected and I have to resort to DMF more often than I would, this means that in street photography you can miss the shots you want. Of course if I was a super pro or photo guru I would not miss them but that's really not the target audience of this camera.

Wow, that blows my mind.  I'm impressed with the NEX6 focusing.  Especially for street shooting which is mostly stationary and high-contrast stuff.  It seems fast and reliable in my experience--especially the 16-50.  I have a lot more trouble with things like birds in trees--the 55-210 often focuses on leaves and branches instead of the bird probably because the AF point is sort of large.

Maybe it's because I'm coming from a Pentax DSLR which I found very hit and miss, especially for human faces.
