Re: But NEX 6 does too

I agree with your post but these comparisons are sometimes vital. In my instance I would be evaluating high ISO low light performance as a primary judgement of the camera. For 30 second ISO6400 nightscape images you really need a fairly clean image to get a decent result.

I concluded looking at these samples the Nex 6 does reasonably well. The XE1 Fuji sets a high bar here - possibly the best in the mirrorless segment in this regard but the Nex 6 is not far behind if at all.

I suppose you should expect that as after all its the same Sony sensor.
