    As the Title line says, there is an article about the NEX-6 and Zeiss 24mm posted today on TOP.

    I consider TOP to be one of my favorite web sites for articles about photography, but that is a personal opinion, and YMMV. Here is a link so you can judge for yourself:

    While it's nice that he likes the camera, I have to say I'm not impressed with the review itself.

    - He rambles way too much.
    - He ignores a lot of features that many, many future users are interested in: video (the Sony's video is some of the best in the mirrorless market...ignoring this is a HUGE mistake), in-camera JPEG (fine, he doesn't shoot JPEG, but that doesn't mean 95% of NEX-6 owners won't), the WiFi (come-ON...this is a huge thing for many camera makers right now, and quite a bit of the Sony's appeal), the flash is done away with in TWO WORDS "it worked," (not all of us carry studio strobes...what a ridiculous thing to say when reviewing a consumer compact), etc
    - He has *ONE* image sample...and even that's nothing special. It doesn't appear to have been taken at high ISOs (1,000...big deal), or in difficult lighting conditions or anything...

    A good review/reviewer should cater to potential buyers. People who are trying to do research and trying to find out more about a product...not be a self-centred rambling of what the reviewer cares and doesn't care about.
