Re: Interesting read by Thom Hogan

I can't say this is a definitive answer, but I do know the NEX-6 does not support PDAF for the 18-105 f4. That would require a firmware update which Sony has said is not in their near plans. So there is a good chance the 6 does not support the FE lenses for PDAF. (Note that I get this from mostly from forum posters who say they got it direct from Sony -- I was not able to find a direct statement myself.)

However, I don't see any reason the 6000 would not support all current lenses -- though with Sony one never knows.

Coming back to Thom's article, I spent much of an hour searching the web for a comprehensive list of which lenses are supported on the NEX 6 -- and didn't find it. By luck I ran across it in a forum post later in the day. My problem with Sony right now is a lack of communication -- it's hard to find definitive information on cameras already in the market, much less any sense of where they are going in the future.
