    So recently took the dive and purchased the NEX 6. I am already in love. I opted to get the body only and purchased a like new black 18-55mm lens for now but will grab a few primes over next few months as I can afford them. This camera is sexy with the lens and I love the look and feel of this camera and the grip IS WORTH IT! The grip allows me to just fling the camera around effortlessly. The EVF is nice and the manual controls are icing on the cake. I have also used it with my older Nikon lenses for my EM and it works quite well! I need to get the aperture ring on one of them fixed but otherwise I am happy :)

    Anyways Cheers!! I may be posting some pics soon but in the meantime just wanted to hear what other NEX 6 users are thinking about their cameras?

    Congrats on the new purchase. I just received my NEX 6 a few days ago also. I'm really liking it from the little bit I have used it so far. It just feels very comfortable to me and it's simply fun to use. Enjoy!

    Another former Nikon film SLR guy, here. I arrived at NEX by way of a couple P&S cameras and a Canon DSLR. Now that I get to use manual lenses, I feel like I'm home again! :biggrin:
