Re: NEX 6 - I could kick myself! ***YEAH - FOR WAITING SO LONG TO BUY IT!

Those with negative reactions to the review - especially the "silver" conclusion - are probably owners who depend on the affirmation of others more than they should. IMHO, if they need that affirmation, they could probably benefit more from therapy than a gear upgrade.

OTOH, those who revel in the review because it's 2-3 points less than the OM-D - and they ALWAYS knew they made a smarter choice with a micro 4/3rds - well, they need to book a few sessions with the therapist, too.

I read the preview. I checked out the RAW performance against the competition and my current camera - and it did precisely what I wanted it to do: Make it possible to use my Leica M mount lenses that had been gathering dust for >20 years. I went to B&H and checked out the EVF. It was all I hoped.

I have been thrilled with it. Yes, I wish the 16-50mm kit lens was faster. Yes, I wish the battery life with heavy EVF use. Yes, I wish there was an AF superwide as fast as my Tokina 11-16 on my D7000. Most of all, I wish it had a mike input with different level settings, like on my D7000.

But to me, it's a shooter's dream. It's one of those cameras you can see yourself hanging onto even when you move up to the next you gotta-have offering.
