Today I played with a NEX-6 in a store for an hour (second time already!) and I'm mightily tempted to buy one: I want cleaner files at low ISO than what my GH2 can offer. I like that little NEX-6 a lot and it ticks all the special boxes for studio work too, like standard hotshoe for studio flashes, flat bottom for tripod, WiFi tethering, powering via USB. No touch screen, oh well. Slow AF? Don't care, will use it with Minolta MF lenses and I'll probably buy an 18-55mm for snapshots. After all this I'm left with a few questions: The wait time before you can fire another shot in single-shot mode is a bit long, maybe close to 0.5 second. Auto review switched off and manual focus on. Did I miss something? The camera's depth is not so large. How stable is it on a tripod with a long lens on it, like a Minolta zoom 70-210mm for instance? I saw some image samples from the 16-50mm and I'm disappointed with the image quality. Is the native 18-55mm zoom better? Best price I saw in The Netherlands is € 699 body-only, with an additional € 75 cashback that would amount to € 624 which looks OK to me, no? Thanks!
