At f/8, you are using CDAF focusing. Read up on 5N focusing techniques, such as center focus and half-press&reframe techniques

Below f/6.3, the Nex-6 will choose PDAF, with the right lens. I'd still suggest the half-press method to allow you to confirm focus.

Either way, turn focus peaking on and the AF assist light off.

Even if I do not own a Nex6... Honnestly, I do not think this is correct.

As the f/6.3 refers to the max aperture of your lens...

before the shutter release, the aperture is alwys at its max value (allowing PDAF similar as in any DSLR pdaf).

Or I am wrong ?
