    Hi everyone ,

    is there going to be a big difference between the two ? I looked at specs and it looks like no viewfinder , touch screen , and more film options for the 5T. All feedback welcome.

    Sounds about right. But, for me at least, no viewfinder = no sale. In bright sunlight, no LCD that I've ever seen can do the job.

    The EVF is the decider for me. It's so much nicer to have one.

    I agree. My GF has the F3 and that is the only fault I see on it.

    Good point Woodworks ! I forget with LCD screens you can not see it if its bright outside.
    Ok This was easier than I thought. I will just stick with the Nex-6 I am trying to decide what lenses to get. I am getting this camera for macro and causal shooting nothing that would require a telephoto or long zoom lens.

    Late last night I came across the Canon SL1 ( I think that is the model) Looks appealing since I already have canon lenses. I looked at the pictures produced and was not too impressed. Some times I wonder are the people who post samples know how to take pictures or are the images really that bad :p

    I am very itchy right now ha ! I want to buy the sony 6 asap but want to find best deal possible and make sure this is the one. I am selling off some of my dads equipment to buy one.

    Don't forget that with the NEX-6 you will be able to use almost every lens you currently own. Almost all of the adapters are very reasonable in price - although you may lose autofocus (and aperture control in some cases). If you look around this site, you will find a number of excellent images that were taken with older manual-focus lenses.

    In regard to NEX-6 price, you will get a very competitive price from B&H Photo, which is one of the advertisers here. (Click through from their link here, so this site gets a commission at no extra cost to you.) Since you are out of state, there will be no sales tax, and B&H is also currently providing a 2% credit toward future purchases.
