Mike, why all the rage? I happen to agree with you and still prefer the NEX7 over the A6000. But that's for 1) metal build and better feel in hand 2) global IQ and sharpness 3) TriNavi interface. Other than that, the A6000 certainly offers some very nice things, namely super fast AF, extra controls, nice customisation options, better menus.
One thing with the A6000 is that you absolutely need to expose violently to the right or else it'll underexpose like crazy. Properly exposed it's one fine camera. And yes I still like the NEX7 better

Marla - do you shoot with the histogram in the EVF?
