Sony NEX-6 Review
4.5 Star Review  photographyblog.com - Jan 1, 2013

The NEX-6 is the latest compact system camera from Sony, slotting in between the mid-level NEX-5R and the top-of-the range NEX-7. With a 16 megapixel APS HD CMOS sensor, 1080p HD movies, high-res 3 inch OLED screen and built-in flash, the Sony NEX-6 also features 10fps burst shooting, wi-fi connectivity and downloadable PlayMemories Camera Apps. Read our full Sony NEX-6 review, complete with sample JPEGs, RAW files, and movies, to find out if it's the best Sony NEX camera yet...

Sony Alpha NEX-6 (Body Only)
4 Star Review  cnet.com - Dec 20, 2012

THE GOOD: A fine shooting design, great photo and good video quality, and excellent performance number among the <b>Sony Alpha NEX-6</b>s strengths. THE BAD: The camera lacks the option to save groups of custom settings, a real irritation, and we wish it had a neutral color preset. Plus Sonys wireless implementation is awkward, and the app system is annoying. THE BOTTOM LINE: The Sony Alpha NEX-6 delivers an as-yet-unbeatable package of image quality, performance, and design, even for its rather high price.

Liked it so much I bought a second
5 Star Review   By Septagenarian on Sony - Official Store - Jan 22, 2014   

I now carry a pair of NEX-6,. one with the telephoto, the other with a wide angle, so I'm ready for any shot. The whole package weighs and cost less than my old "Pro" SLR kit. The quality of images is generally the same, I have no problem with the plastic case, but I do wish they were weather sealed and had sensor motion stabilization. This camera could be better, but at this price, it must be the best value around. I have been a serious photographer for 65 years.

Works very well
5 Star Review   By garyabq on Sony - Official Store - Dec 1, 2013   

I bought this camera to test out shooting manual focus lenses (Leica) with focus peaking. I bought the Voigtlander Leica M to Sony E mount adapter and I've been shooting my Leica glass to see how accurate focus peaking is. With most Leica glass it has been perfect. I am nailing about 95% of shots which is a much higher percentage than shooting with my M9. In lower light situations the focus peaking is a little weak but overall I've been very pleased. This camera works particularly well with the Voigtlander 35mm f1.2 lens and the Leica 75mm APO Summicron lens. I've also been very pleased with the Auto WB… much much better than my M9. I am now looking forward to trying my Leica glass on the new A7r. As an aside, I'd read that the NEX menus were annoying to many of the reviewers. While the Sony NEX menus are a little long, I did not have any problems adapting to the menus. Overall this has been a very nice little camera to use. Even the plastic body feels pretty solid. I highly recommend it.

A Dream Come True
4 Star Review   By thequietman on Adorama - Oct 8, 2013   

This is an upgrade from my previous Nex-5. I love this camera. It feels like an upgrade as well. The images say everything so get yourself one while they are available.

Great except...
4 Star Review   By lporrel on Sony - Official Store - Aug 15, 2013   

A great camera, but it lacks Auto ISO functionality in M mode. Even the Canon T3i has this feature. I wonder if this is something that could be amended in a firmware update. The addition of this feature would make M mode much more useful and elevate the camera to five starts out of five.

Does not support tethered capture to laptop. Since there's no real technical reason for this, it seems to be an oversight or a marketing decision. As such, the camera does not suit my needs and I returned it. Really, really disappointed.

Pretty Pictures But
4 Star Review   By Svenlovesflo on Adorama - Nov 14, 2012   

Images are very nice and colorful but with a lack of quality lenses the potential for this camera cannot be maximized...I am sure the Zeiss lens is fantastic but that is a bit steep for me...I got the body only and added the 50mm 1.8...It takes some nice
