By the way, the only camera I feel is a NEX 7 equal, is my Nikon D7100, but because of it's size I usually choose the NEX to take with me.....

Have you ever compared image quality between the two? The D7100 blows the doors off the NEX-7. D7100 vs NEX-6 is a bit more fair, but the D7100 still walks away, no contest. I've got both, and was appalled at the NEX-7's image after ISO 800, so I got an NEX-6 instead. Amusingly, I find myself shooting it more than the D7100 because of its MF ability and Speed Booster availability, but the D7100 is still in use for sports and max quality images. Hoping the A6000 can be its equal in both.

Oh oh, one needs a pair of rubber boots to read through that crap, lol...

Feel free to wade through the sample RAWs at sites like here or PhotographyBlog, as well, and make comparisons.  LOTS of my work is done at mid and high ISO, so the NEX-7 would just limit what I could shoot.  The NEX-6 uses the same sensor as the D7000, which is considered to be almost equal in overall noise to the D7100 if you're talking 100% crops.  The NEX-7 would easily beat the 6 for studio, tripod-mounted landscape, and sunny day shots, but that's about it.
