NEX6 vs. X-E1 (vs. X-Pro1)

I am on the same boat... have a D700 with 24-120/4 VR, 105VR, x1.7, PC-E 24mm and a Tamron 70-300VC (selling on ebay right now).  Don't really like the Nikon 1, and the coolpix A has a fix lens - not my style. So bad that Nikon has a very strange philosophy in making small cameras. They just refuse to go for a "normal" route.

So, I went to a local store today to try out few options.  Compare Nex6 with Fuji, the Nex6 doesn't have the build quality Fuji has.  Although, one may thing only the picture (outcome) counts. But I am a gear guy. A good quality camera is part of the joy. So, Nex 6 is out. But for people don't mind the plastic feel of Sony, Nex 6 seems great deal.

I think I may go for the X-E1 unless someone shows me the critical difference.
