Owned the NEX-6 and some Sony lenses and here was my experience:

Menu diving on the NEX6 for many common things often detracted from my ability to get the shot.

As an eyeglass wearer I did not find the viewfinder pleasant to use in daylight and usually just used the external LCD screen anyway.

After I got the X-T1, I sold my NEX6.

No more menu diving to get in the way of the shot. Now I can glance at my configuration and change it anytime quickly.

The viewfinder is a dream come true. I almost always use the viewfinder now, and even enjoy shooting manual lenses such as my Nikon 50mm F1.2 using the dual viewfinder mode.


I believe this is the reason Sony went away from the NEX interface and instead ported over the Alpha interface for the A6000.
