p.1 #1 · Two nex 6/7 questions / rx1


Borrowed a 6 - The 5/6 menus are killing me after using the rx1. Is the 7 more geared to organized layout?
Lis the rx1 evf better than the 6. I'm not impressed with the nex 6 evf. In lower light it's very laggy and peaking is poor

NEX-7 use the same kind of crappy menu as other NEX 3/5/6 series.

All the NEX cameras use the same menu. The RX-1 and the RX-100 I think both use a different type menu. You'll kind of get used to it with time though.

In that after you set up the camera you hardly ever have to go into the menu.
I hope that the new NEX's are released(FF & ?) that the menus will be updated, and older NEX's will get it too with a FW update

NEX-7 and 6 relies less on the menu compares to NEX-5/3, but one setting I frequently use, enable/disable OSS, is deep in the menu.

Regarding the EVF, it's lens dependent, if you use a faster lens, the sensor gets more light and it works better... if you use a 6.3 lens (like the long end of the 18-200 or 55-210 zoom), it'd be much worse than if you are using a 1.8 lens.

thanks for the info. I really appreciate it. So far I'm only using it Kit zoom. Which frankly is awful. The old one the non power zoom was much superior in my opinion.

I did pop the 45g on there but its awkward with the metabones adaptor.

I used it today on a scouting trip and noticed really weird mustache distortion on the wide end of the kit lens

the sensor seems exactly the same as the 5n I sold

which is to say not too bad when paired with a good lines a question is what are the guidelines is right now? I'm contemplating possibly Touit 12 millimeter or trying the 10-18


But this house today...I can't see shooting it w/out a DSLR except for features.

To be honest I thought I'd be a bit more impressed with the 6, maybe its just the crappy kit lens letting it down.o really do think its a lot worse than the original. I'll see what I can borrow. Iso 3200 cleans up pretty well. I'm spoiled by full frame for sure.


Is the rx1 evf better than the next?


Here's a very crappy snapshot with the 6 and kit handheld. Like I said it was a scouting trip figured I'd take the nex Look at the ceiling line upper left. Yikes.

Yeah, the power zoom is about the worst lens I've used on NEX, at least in my limited time with it.

I was tempted to buy the nex 5r from best buy for $387. Just because it had a better kit lens. But ... I really really need to see the 10-18 results or touit 12.
