My brother asked me to buy Nex for him...

I have used nex-5N before, but I'd like to get him either Nex-6 or nex-7.

which is a better one....?
For a casual snaps and travel....

Unless he really needs the extra resolution, the 6 should be a better fit.

Very nice monochromes Lumis & Alwang!

Last of the Canon FDn 35/2 shots for a bit, while I see if any of my wider & tele combos can compete:

@alwang, nice to see some samples from the 35mm 1.8, thanks for sharing. That lens looks like a winner. May I ask your impressions so far?

@sebboh, its amazing the range of habitat the gbh calls home. What an incredible bird! I like the muted winter tones very much in your shot.

Thanks, taran and alan. I'm still getting to know the 35/1.8, but overall I'm pretty happy. I'm still waiting to shoot a stopped-down scene with detail across the frame, which would be more telling. It definitely doesn't have the microcontrast of my Contax G lenses, but the resolution is there. I'm noticing a fair amount of CA even stopped down to f2.8, but it's easily cleaned up in lightroom.

The handling is great: very light, decent manual focus feel, and the OSS is fantastic. I still can't get used to AF on the NEX, and I haven't found settings that work well for me.

AF sucks on the NEX if you're used to having fine control over what the camera focuses on.

on a related note, does anybody know if it's possible to turn off the autozoom when you turn the focus ring without turning off the ability to zoom in at the push of a button.

alan_m -- Love the night shots

It finally stopped raining long enough to walk around the harbor. These shots are all taken with a Nex 5n and g 90 lens.







Looking into the late afternoon sun works with this lens.

+1, It is really great. it will be even greater with some minimal PP to lift a little shadow and sharpening.

Sounds like the higher resolution of the 7 wouldn't be necessary, Paul, so unless there's a compelling reason for your brother to have the tri-nav wheels, I'd go with the 6.


Thanks for the kind input...
Resolution aside, which one has a better IQ ...?
Also, does Nex-6 handle the super wide 3rd party lens better than Nex-7?

Hey Paul,
Resolution aside, which one has a better IQ ...?
A complicated answer, both, the 7 if you don't use wide lenses that cause color shift or smearing, and if you keep the ISO below 1000,
otherwise the 5N, 5R, & 6 will have better IQ with the least PP required.
Also, does Nex-6 handle the super wide 3rd party lens better than Nex-7?
For the most part yes, The 7 shows some color shift on just about every WA lens that I've seen, some better than others, even on some Sony lenses.
Color shift is relatively easy to cure using Cornerfix or similar programs, when there is smearing, the lens is more or less useless.
Would you kindly share which aspects of Nex-6 is better than the Nex-7?
The EVF may be improved somewhat according to reports, RF wide performance, standard hotshoe, I don't think I've heard of any grips peeling on the 6, I'm not sure if Sony eliminated that problem with new 7's at the source.

Most owners love the extra resolution, dynamic range and extra controls of the 7, but hate the color shift and high ISO noise.
The 6 so far hasn't had any serious flaws that I've seen or heard about, and a lot of 7 owners wish it had the features the 6 has.(sensor & hotshoe)
