Re: Nex 6 but now ?

I own an NEX-6 and a Panasonic GX1.  Both are great cameras, but different.

I MUCH prefer the grip on the NEX to anything the rangefinder styled micro43 cameras have to offer.  If you should decide to go the legacy lens route, NEX would get my vote due to the smaller crop factor.

My NEX-6 came with the new 16-50mm collapsable zoom.  This is a really nice small lens and works very very well.  I give it two thumbs up.

NEX gets thumbs down for poorly designed menus, and limited flexability in reassigning functions to buttons.  Also no custom settings save slots.

Micro43 has a better selection of lenses, but NEX is starting to catch up.  The main thing with lenses is, decide what you really NEED, and then see if it is available in the mount of your choice.  Both are equally good with legacy glass.

Personally, I wouldn't buy an OMD because I don't want a faux DSLR.  If I want that style of camera, I will buy a real DSLR (with an OVF).  In fact, I have three, all FF.

Bottom, line, get into a store and handle each to help you decide if you like the 'feel' of it.  Buy whichever camera 'feels' better (assuming they have your needed lenses).  You really cannot go wrong no matter what you choose.
