I'm only half joking. Lol. Not sure how it happened exactly. I have a NEX 6 that I am very happy with, along with a few lenses. I basically have everything covered from ultra wide with the 16mm and adapter through the 55-210 plus the 35/1.8 prime. I had been considering the 16-70z, but thought it was a little pricey. I also was thinking about a DSLR for better AF and/or either a DSLR or m4/3 for greater lens and accessory options.

Next thing I know B&H offers A $300 discount on the 16-70 and A6000 combo. I wasn't yet sure if I was going to buy the 16-70 and had all but decided not to upgrade the NEX at this point. But there I was pushing the buy button! And I don't usually do things like that.

Oh well. It's still on pre-order, so I guess I'll have some time to consider my actions :).

Check the used market for the NEX-6. It's terrific. Anything without an EVF is terrible.

I will, Mel. It's good to know.  Not sure what I am going to do just yet. And I have to admit that I am still looking at all of the potential options I mentioned. But one possibility is to keep the NEX 6 as a second body. I had considered at one point getting a less expensive camera from the Emount line as a backup and so I wouldn't have to change lenses often, but I didn't want anything without an EVF either.
