Re: PDAF like the A7.....

Actually, PDAF does help NEX-6 although its effectiveness is more limited (and a first generation attempt). The a6000 design may be all new and more effective.

As far as I know, PDAF on NEX-6 is only used to start the AF process, as PDAF tells the camera whether the lens should be focused farther or closer (contrast detection can't tell), thus avoiding some hunting. The NEX-6 completes the auto-focusing with contrast-detection. The A6000 might use PDAF more... in any case, I think we need to know more about this, and see some independent hands-on review.
