Anyone had chance to play with NEX-6 extensively? It actually just landed in the shops here in Japan and I had a fiddle around with one. Sadly, I didn't have any adapted lenses with me so the test was pretty much pointless...:/
I own one, but haven't had a NEX before, so my comments might be more for NEX cameras in general.
Compared to my 300D though, it's amazing. Main complaint is lack of control over the dials. Also, the grip is good but not great, but I can't imagine it's much different than some of the other NEX grips. It feels ungainly and uncomfortable with a Rokkor 58/1.2 but heavenly with a G 45, probably like the other NEXes.
Haven't used wireless yet (haven't had a need to) but I suppose today or sometime I'll start playing around with that. Images look fantastic, but when shooting on a cloudy day on default metering all my images are 1-2 stops underexposed. I do prefer that to the opposite problem. Also, there's still noise at ISO 100 even when properly exposed.
Other than that, it's a pleasure to use and feels great dangling from my neck. Not much to say about it really. It does everything I want a camera to do and does it in a small package. I though the EVF would annoy me but I love it. Not as good as, say, an OM-1 viewfinder, but far, far better than the Rebel optical viewfinders.
Also, I will say, I never thought I wanted a touchscreen, and the NEX interface is actually pretty clean and does well without one, but it would be even better with a touchscreen. I wish it had one.
