When it comes to picture quality, bigger really is better. The NEX-6 comes with a huge, DSLR-sized APS-C sensor. This captures more light and more of the image coming into the lens reaches the sensor. The result – beautifully lit, pro-quality 16.1 megapixel shots.

GENERAL REMARKS
Lovely tool to use. Be aware however that some third-party batteries and power-adapters that worked perfectly well with a NEX-5 will be rejected as 'incompatible' by the NEX-6 ... frustrating for photographers but Sony are trying to protect their profits and therefore the incompatibility cannot really be described as a defect of either the camera or of the third-party product.

NEX-6 BENEFITS COMPARED WITH NEX-5
For somebody contemplating an upgrade from a NEX-5 the significant benefits I have found have been:

(+) The viewfinder. Whereas the back screen isn't bright enough to be seen properly in bright sunlight, the view finder can be used reliably whatever the light.
(+) The controls are very similar to those of the NEX-5 but are (a) configured slightly more usefully, and (b) include an aperture dial which means that it is now very easy to adjust both aperture and shutter speed when using 'A' or 'M' modes, even when using the viewfinder.
(+) The changed location of the video button. When using the NEX-5 I frequently would unintentionally press the video button and waste time and/or memory space. So far I have never had such a problem with the NEX-6.
(+) The provision of a proper flash hot shoe means I have one less adapter to carry around or lose.
(+) Built-in flash. I hadn't missed built-in flash on the NEX-5 and wasn't expecting to use it on the NEX-6. However, as it happens, I've found it rather handy.

OTHER NOTES
(+) The NEX6 is quite a bit larger than the NEX5. On balance, I've found this advantageous because there is more camera to hold on to. Moreover, I'd never really treated the NEX-5 as a pocket camera because of the size of the lenses I tend to use.

This is a great camera. Small and light, APS sized sensor. Picture quality is fantastic. Price is very nice at the moment as this camera will likely be discontinued. Grab one while you can. Go to Camera Centre for great service and fair prices.

I really wanted to love this camera. APC sized "SLR" sensor, in a small body, with a lot of lenses available, at good prices, and at relatively small size and light weight. Also, for me, it had one great attraction, paired with the 24mm equivalent pancake lens and converter you have a real (in 25mm terms) 18mm ultra wide angle lens, that is small, light-weight and performs superbly.
I purchased that lens pairing together with the 75mm (in 35mm terms) 1.8 lens.

Went on holiday to Cornwall for a few days and almost exclusively used the 18mm lens for landscape, and the results were great!

BUT, and here's the big but, there are some problems with this camera. The menu system is just diabolical. Everyone says it is, but until you try and use it you don't realise just how bad it is, especially when compared to the Sony RX100 and RX10, which are easy to use.
Next the sensor is a dust magnet. I only changed lenses a few times, very carefully, but kept getting dark dust marks on all my images. Tried rocket blowering the sensor which helped but the dust particles kept coming back. The camera supposedy has some vibration device that comes on when the camera is switched on and off to "shake" any dust particles from the sensor. Well, it doesnt work.
Worst of all is the EVF. It shimmered all the time, had lag, and was just horrible. Nothing like the EVF on the RX10 which is a joy. As I only use a viewfinder it got to the stage where I just couldnt use this camera, and returned it.

Now, of course, I may have had a "bad 'un", that is possible, but I doubt it.

I also struggled to understand why it lacked options that are standard in the RX100 and RX10 such as being able to set a range of ISO for Auto.

Very versatile compact camera. Very useful if you want to travel and have a worthwhile camera that you can take if the airline imposes strict size and weight restrictions.
Very easy to use and provides great results.
