Hi friends, this is my first post. I own a5100 camera, and im happy, but im thinking to buy used NEX6 for EVF and for the greate price in the used market nowadays (NEX 7 and a6000 are out of my budget). Do you think NEX6 is stepback in IQ? I know I get 16mpx vs 24mpx sensor, but I thought NEX6 would be better in low light situations due a higher pixel size. Howerver Dxomark scores rates NEX6 worst than a5100 in low light ISO. I would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks!

I know this seems quite basic but I can't seem to figure it out (haven't been able to find anything that compares it quite so well) Is it really just the megapixel count (and the few updated features...? and if so, are the lenses interchangeable? what are the advantages (other than better features at some point, higher megapixel rate?) is there anything technical i'm missing out on? i'm asking because i'm just about to invest in a camera system. Sony seems to be the most admired for lowlight...

Hi! I have a NEX-6 and an a99v. Both are very good for most things. but low light high ISO is not one of those things. How is the D3 compared to modern mirrorless like a6300, a6500, a7 Mk2 etc in terms of AF speed and accuracy in low light and also noise levels at high ISO. I'm talking about shots at sunset or lower light levels. I will not climb mountains or walk around for the whole day with this kit so weight is not a high priority. Technical quality with 12MP will be plenty good enough...

Hi: Likely a newb question - but I just upgraded from my NEX-6 after 5 years to an A6300. I have of course read much about the overheating/shutdown when shooting video (and also sometimes when shooting stills.) In any event, I got it yesterday and have been playing with it for about an hour or two each night - very light stuff, just setting up menus, taking test shots while sitting on my couch, reviewing them and deleting them,  Both nights I've noticed the camera getting very warm to the...

Hi: I've been working with my NEX-6 for about 5 years, until it has sadly started failing - so I have an A6300 coming.  My main day-to-day lens is the kit 18-55, mixed occasionally with the 16mm with the ultra-wide extension attached.  I also have the 55-210 because I wanted a longer zoom - but find I rarely use it because of the hassle of changing lenses and being stuck at a low end of 55 until I decide to switch back to the kit lens. As such, I've been looking closely at the 18-105G to...

Hi! Need advise on investment budget. I have the NEX-6 with PZ16-50 and 55-210. I also have the a99v with Minolta 24-85 and Tamron 70-200 2.8 (old version, screwdrive focus). I recently bought a Minolta 24-105D for travel. Now, I am perfectly satisfied with the a99 regardless of glass, the NEX with 16-50 has problems with low light but gives good results i bright light e. g. sunny days. The problem I have with the NEX is that pictures lack depth, contrast and simply don't stand out. The...

I am getting on NEX-6, firmware version 1.03, while Front Curtain Shutter is On:"Camera error. Turn power off then on."With EFCS off, camera works fine. Is it a self fixable issue and if yes, could you please guide me how to do it?

Frankly, I don't understand: When I shoot video with my mirrorless NEX-6 I am told the shutter stays open all the time. I am also told to set a shutter speed of double the fps for "that film look"? But if the shutter is open all the time, what effect does shutter speed have?

Hi, I'm looking for advice regarding the ideal lightweight low-priced autofocus medium zoom all-rounder OSS lens for my Nex-6. I recently purchased this b/only Nex-6 and initially bought no lenses, opting rather to use a number of full-frame Minolta lenses with adapters for both MD-mount and A-mount, and my conclusions are as follows: With my fixed-focus manual lenses I can obtain incredibly good results, as long as I keep a careful eye on exposure (obviously I'm using aperture priority),...
