Re: Yes

EiensteinsGhost nailed most of it. I own Nikon and Sony stuff. I just got the Nex6 a whie back and have not used my A65 since. It is to me almost perfect with a few items like he mentioned. But for travel etc I love it I have the 16-50 no problems and the Tamron 18-200 very nice complement fit well to body. The original Sony 18-200 did not leave much room for fingers. I have shot video and pictures with both lens they look great.  My pictures and video at iso 6400 blew me away as seen on a 55 inch LCD and when printed.

I did also purchase the LA-EA2 (great price on Amazon) auto focus adapter to use A lens on the Nex6 and it works great even my fat large 16-50 Sony F2.8 it feels good on it not even top heavy. To me there is so much good about the Nex6 it seems underated in print. I love the diffent features on my many cameras (suffering form camera lust) but the Nex6 is on top.  By the way my travel companion to the Nex6 is a RX100
