At least Sony has figured it out. They had AF-C on the RX1 in an early production model and then removed the mode for the final model that shipped to consumers.

True. I guess the main point I was trying to make was that no manufacturer currently has a good AF-C solution for mirrorless. This is one area where any DSLR will crush a mirrorless camera.

But the thing is, I have NEX6 with PDAF support. I was in good light. I had the lens that supported PDAF and verified that it was on.

In NEX, On Sensor PDAF complements CDAF to improve CDAF performance, that I believe it succeeds in. However, for speedier approach, putting mirror on the NEX is the solution (LA-EA2 adapter) that makes AF all PDAF. Alternatively, you could try shooting with increased DoF, a reason why CDAF plus large sensor struggle for faster AF.
