    Hi guys/gals! Apparently I signed up in 2011 because I wanted to get a NEX 7. That didn't happen and I went through many systems. I just recently let go of my mu4/3 gear and have finally decided to grab myself an NEX 6. I'll be using legacy glass with it. I'm also interested in the A7/r but that can wait for now. I've been lurking and so far gathered a lot of useful information about the NEX system. Hope to stick around for a long while! :biggrin:

    Cheers!

    Welcome, Yves. Let's see some photos from your NEX-6, when you get the chance.

    Yup, the 6 is a great value for money camera and can be found at very good prices nowadays with the hype over the A7/R - Welcome ;)

    I just received my 6 yesterday and took a couple shots of the camera I was using previously. I'll post it here. I must say, for my first initial impressions, I think this system fits me waaay better than any of the other systems I've used. After about 10 minutes of playing with the camera I've already set it up the way I like.

    ISO 6400 at 1/30 handheld. I used a MD Vivitar 24mm f2.8. I'm hoping to go out this weekend to really test out the camera! :D

    Nice X20!!!

    I got my NEX6 in October, and had bought my X20 back in March. I am very interested to hear about your experiences with you 6 and how/if you continue to use the X20! I am still finding that my X20 is with me way more often than my 6...
