I'm pretty sure it is 2 dials
Congrats on the future cam !!
6 is going to be great on two counts : by it's own right, AND because it's gonna push 7 prices massively down <grin>
I see the mode dial, but I meant that it looked like that one could possibly be stacked - i.e., you could lock the top mode portion and then the bottom would move separately to control aperture, shutter, etc., which would then give you a total of two control dials (non-mode), with the one at the bottom. Like I said, maybe wishful thinking when I saw what looked like two dials stacked on top of each other at the mode dial.
Thanks, I should have read it all the way through:
"A notable distinction between the NEX-6 and any previous model in the lineup is the inclusion of an eight-position exposure mode dial which rests on the top plate. Sandwiched directly underneath it is a larger-circumference control dial. A built-in flash, new standard ISO hot shoe (that still supports Sony's proprietary connector) and OLED viewfinder with adjacent diopter round out the remaining controls."
Two control dials, plus a mode dial, would work pretty well for me.
Yeah, I considered that very point about pricing on the 7, but the 24MP sensor scares me. I can't afford a bunch of four figure Zeiss glass, and I think with the 7 I'd be thinking that was necessary. 16MP on the 6 seems to hit the Goldilocks spot for me -- just right.
You've gone from an E-M5 to GX1 to NEX, correct? I'm wondering if you miss the IBIS on the E-M5 when shooting MF lenses? I'm certain that focus peaking is a big step up, but I find the stabilization useful even on 50mm lenses.
