Re: Nex 6 just not sharp?

Not to sound harsh and really I'm not... but it is usually user error with this kind of thing. Even though you shot those three with different settings I don't see where the NEX is that much worse in sharpness. I just picked up the NEX-6 and kit 16-50mm and spent a couple of days shooting Montauk Point, NY and can tell you that it is plenty sharp. Of course there are lenses that have better glass and are sharper. I don't think your camera is faulty or the kit lens is bad. I had the 7D and it was a fine camera and in fact every camera that I have had was able to take sharp pictures. You just need to really learn your camera and it's strengths and weaknesses. The other replies also had some good advice.  I have been shooting Raw + Jpg and the Jpegs actually look pretty good.
