    I like the addition of a dial and more buttons to the 5r. Makes me wish i waited.

    This will cause some dillemas to some people deciding as to whether to: which model to purchase, what features are they really after, or if they should wait even further.

    This is starting to get confusing, but I like that Sony is coming out with various options.

    So, NEX-6 looks mighty ugly with that protruding mode dial (although there seems to be another dial beneath it). Standard hot-shoe is nice, but looks like an afterthought, almost bolted-on.

    My biggest irk with the 5N EVF is the flicker when the camera or the subject is moving because it triggers photo-sensitive nausea for me.

    I don't mind if the EVF resolution of the NEX6 is lower as long as it has a higher refresh-rate (doesn't flicker). If it does, I'm all over the NEX6!

    The mode dial is kinda ugly, I woulda hoped they went for the NEX-7 aesthetics... It looks too much like a cheap copy from another design they just slapped on for testing, rather than a final. I hope so anyway!

    I suppose because I was drawn to the 5N because of it's MF prowess, in the back of my mind I do treat the NEX like a retro MF rangefinder camera. Although I like the 'idea' of the twin programmable dials on the NEX7, what I'm really missing is that one single shutter-speed dial up top (instead of the mode-dial that's pictured).

    I almost use my NEX exclusively with legacy glass - I can't get enough of the aesthetics of engraved numbers on the barrel, plus the DOF vernier scale. Every time I turn the aperture ring and feel and hear the mechanical ratchets clicking, I instinctively reach for a shutter-speed dial... that isn't there.

    Oh well, I'll settle for something close enough...
