Maybe you should have looked a little closer before you made that choice. On the NEX-6, the thumb dial underneath the mode knob shifts function depending on whether it's in Aperture priority or Shutter priority mode. In aperture mode, it adjusts the aperture. In shutter mode, it adjusts the shutter speed. The problem that photoomaha had would only happen in Manual mode. Even then, with a reasonably gentle touch, the problem he had would not occur. Having had all three bodies, I would rank them as follows:
Ergonomics:
1. NEX-6
2. NEX-7
3. NEX-5N

Imager noise:
1. NEX-5N
2. NEX-6
3. NEX-7

The NEX-7 obviously wins the resolution ranking

Actually, I did look very close and for me the NEX-7 was better. It's fine if you prefer something else, but please don't tell me what is good for me. I don't have very wide rangefinder lenses so I have no color issues. I prefer to not shoot at ISO 6400, so the low ISO performance of the sensor easily outshines the other NEX cameras. I know exactly how the NEX-6 works. I love how you can press the AF/MF button and switch to manual focusing. Oops, you can't, only have these buttons on the NEX-7.

I have a NEX 7 and NEX 5N and I prefer the sensor on the 7.
(...)
Dynamic range is better on the 7.


Yes indeed, dynamic range on the Nex-7 is amazing, you instantly notice it when you use it. Big difference to the Nex-5N and of course to the Canon 5d and such. It also seems to be a real useable DR, not just a reserve that it hidden in the deepest shadows. High ISO noise is not something very important to me, I generally find this to be quite overrated these days. I also think that optimizing cameras for ultra high ISOs will have an impact on low ISO quality and colour reproduction.

Cheers
Bernie

That's fine but your post sounded like your decision was based on photoomaha's experience. If you actually handled a NEX-6 and you prefer the 7, that's fine. Oh, if you set up the Fn button options on the NEX-6, you can make the AF/MF switch in two button presses.

Please post comparison images that demonstrate the DR differences to a meaningful degree.

+1. 24 mp is better for any photo that needs a crop, and isn't shot at ISO 6400.

@philip wonderful snow shots

@Taylor those sb+elmarit shots a few pages back so Impressive, I had to research the speed booster. OMG, have I been out of the loop! If only such a thing were possible for M glass :-(

So, now I have to find a Kern Switar 50 mm F1 .9? Now, what does that turn into on a nex with speed booster?

I used them together for a while and didn't notice a practical difference, never shot a direct comparison though.

Wonderful pictures and so much talent here! On my daily way to the bakery, sometimes I take the cut over the cemetary. As today.

I've had my 7 for a couple of weeks. Plasticmotif sent me a MD 50 1.4 which I took to an abandoned house today. I'm sure they'll be a little controversial but I love the lens.

The two of the baby doll head are cropped but otherwise monochrome jpegs right out of the camera.





A bit of sharpening for the window using the raw file.

This is a bit of a cheeky post

I reckon this post has potential for belonging to three threads in the Alt forum
