Not different at all. Not everyone needs to have the latest, fastestm flashiest, etc. But the marketeers, all the way from paid lowly fanboys to camera-toting corporate executives and salespeople are exorting us with constant messages to Buy, Buy, Buy!!! Who can resist that?

I bought the A6000 but don't see myself as a victim of marketing. My decision was purely based upon technical facts: the A6000 is much much better for me, due to the vastly improved AF system. And the 24MP (without color cast) are nice to have, too, because I often crop my pictures heavily.

Having said that, the NEX6/NEX7 are still fantastic cameras and I totally understand anyone who decides staying with them.
