So at my price point it is with Sony Nex6 ..... poor primes

It's interesting that this is mentioned again and again, just because the 16mm pancake is not really that good and there were not many other e-mount primes available 1 year ago.

There are decent prime lenses now: the 35mm F1.8 and 50mm F1.8 ... the 19mm and 30mm Sigma lenses ... even the 30mm Macro has it's uses.

Sure, Samsung has the superb 60mm Macro and the 85mm portrait lenses. Sony has the 24mm CZ lens (35mm eq) instead and there will probably be a new 85mm F1.8 lens this year.

Regarding lenses both systems have their gems and I'd say they're on the same level now ... it depends on what you need.

not sure if they are in the same level now. having decent is not the same as being remarkable. Sony has yet to produce something that would make the NEX system "stand out", meaning not being mediocre. if decent is the only thing the NEX is capable of, I would look somewhere else. e.g. despite the still limited lineup for the Fuji X system, it's 35mm offering made enough of an impression to invest in the system. point is, the NEX needs to provide a lens that it can be proud of.
