Review summary from DPReview

Sony NEX-6L/B 16.1 MP Compact System Camera
What type of small camera is best for me?
Does image stabilization really make a difference?
DPReview Silver AwardMarch 2013
The NEX-6 offers a highly attractive combination of excellent image quality, courtesy of Sony's proven 16MP sensor, enthusiast-friendly ergonomics, a 'real' hot shoe, an OLED electronic viewfinder, and useful features like Sweep Panorama and Auto HDR.

Conclusion

The NEX-6 offers a highly attractive combination of excellent image quality, enthusiast-friendly ergonomics (including a mode dial--a first for the NEX-series), a 'real' hot shoe, an OLED electronic viewfinder, and useful features like Sweep Panorama and Auto HDR. That said, the NEX's user interface isn't for everyone. Having to download (and sometimes pay for) apps can be frustrating, and for best results you'll need to shoot raw.

Reasons to buy

  • Very good image quality and high ISO performance
  • Electronic viewfinder and tilting LCD both excellent
  • Built-in Wi-Fi allows for photo sharing and remote camera control
  • Snappy focusing and shot-to-shot speeds
  • Mode dial and flash hot shoe boost enthusiast friendliness

Things to consider

  • Best image quality obtained from Raw images
  • Many controls still accessed through clunky menu-driven interface
  • Movie recording button awkwardly positioned
  • Missing the touchscreen controls of less expensive models
  • Playback confusingly separated into stills, MP4 and AVCHD sections

Suggested for

Enthusiasts who want great photo and video quality, fun-to-use features, and more traditional controls than other NEX models.

Not suggested for

Not much - we'd like to see touchscreen interface though, and some people will resent paying for some of the 'apps'.

Customer Reviews

Because at the end of the day, a camera is only as good as the one you have with you.
J Park
I would say that for even the most serious of photographers, the Sony NEX-6 has some features which would make the camera very useful in many situations.
J. Ross
All in all, a great camera for a guy like me, not professional but likes taking pictures to capture the moment in life.

Style Name: With 16-50mm Lens
In 1973 I bought a Rollei 35 - a 35mm camera with a collapsible 40 mm f/3.5 lens. It cost $200, equal to about $1,000 today. It was fully manual - no auto- anything. There was an optical viewfinder but no rangefinder. It took great pictures and fit in a coat pocket. Now we have the Sony NEX-6, only marginally larger than the Rollei, effectively for the same price when you adjust for inflation.

Even though I have a Canon 5D Mark II, a wonderful DSLR, its size and weight are a big deterrent to taking it with me routinely. So I wanted a camera designed in the spirit of the Rollei 35 - to fit in a coat pocket, have a sensor big enough to make 11 x 14 enlargements, have a zoom lens with a 24mm field of view, and a have a built-in viewfinder, not an add-on, and not just an LCD. Until now (11/2012) the options were the Sony NEX-7, upcoming Fuji X-E1 and the larger Olympus OM-D, all at $1300 or more.

I have now taken about 500 shots and the NEX-6 is close to perfect for my purposes - a digital reincarnation of the Rollei 35. But it won't be right for everyone.

The heart of the NEX-6 is an APS-C size sensor, the size in the vast majority of DSLRs. It's 1.5 times the size of a the "4/3rds" sensor found in similar Olympus and Panasonic cameras and 3 times the size of the sensor in Nikon 1 cameras. As a result, the image quality is excellent up to ISO 1600 and not bad up to ISO 6400. A new Sony kit lens gives a field of view equal to 24-75mm on a 35mm camera. The lens focuses quickly and collapses to a small size, so the camera fits in a coat pocket or the corner of a backpack. There are some complaints on Internet forums about the lens vignetting and about distortion at the wide end.

Style Name: With 16-50mm Lens Verified Purchase
Before I begin, let it be known that I come from the DSLR world, I'm what most people would consider a "pro-consumer" or serious enthusiast, I've owned many pro-grade cameras, my last one was the Canon 5Dmk3, which cleaned out my bank account along with some L lenses, I love the 5Dmk3, and I know that no cropped-frame camera can (yet) come close to it, so I'm not here to compare the NEX-6 to a pro-grade body. Why the NEX-6? or any mirror-less compact {powerful} camera?: After having a baby last year I could not carry my 5D/lenses around with a diaper bag, formula, bottle warmer, stroller, and all the crap my wife makes me carry. So I went to the mirror-less line a little over a ago when the NEX-7 came out, I've had the NEX7 for about a year now, but I've never been fully satisfied with it, it is great, but not all that great. I sold it a week ago after listing it on Amazon (I didn't think it would sell so fast!) And so with the earnings/lost money from the NEX7, I wanted to try this NEX-6, the new features of it and see if the NEX line is still for me, or if I should jump ship, sell the rest of my NEX lenses and go micro 4/3 (MFT) with the Olympus OM-D EM5 (which is the camera that most people consider NEX-6's top competitor). So here we go...

I've had the NEX-6 for about 10 days now and I've been testing the OM-D for about 4 days now, so I feel pretty confident and ready to give my review:

What I really like about the NEX-6:

+ Great ISO (low light) performance. Better than the NEX7, and slightly better than the OM-D (this is due to a larger APS-C sensor than OM-D's Micro 4/3, and compared to the NEX-7, the NEX-6 has a lower MP count on this sensor, the NEX7 has more resolution, but images have considerably more noise at 1600 ISO and above).

Style Name: Body Only
Bottom line, the NEX 6 is a well designed camera that's easy to use and takes good quality photos. The finish and balance of the camera are excellent and - for the most part - it's a joy to use.

This is Sony's 8th NEX camera in just over two years. You can't say that they aren't serious about the camera line. The NEX 6 is an enthusiast's camera. It's for photographers who are looking for more manual controls than are available in the NEX 3 or 5 models. It has a similar 16 MP sensor to the others and the same very good image quality. You aren't gaining better picture quality in getting the 6 vs one of the NEX 3 or 5 models. So if you are moving up from a phone camera or a point and shoot, you might find one of the other models closer to what you are used to than the NEX 6.

On the other hand, if you are looking at the NEX 6 as second camera, or even as a replacement for a bigger one, the 6 is much more portable than a DSLR the extra dials and buttons on the NEX 6 will speed up camera mode and exposure changes. So, on to the specifics

The first yes is the inclusion of an electronic viewfinder (EVF), similar to the one in the NEX 7. That's a great inclusion and makes the 6 more versatile. It's seems similar to the NEX 7 EVF and the same pixel dimension. The EVF is sharp and clear. It works well on this size camera.

The second yes is the addition of a flash shoe, a real one that accepts all sorts of manual flashes. It's a change from the old reversed Minolta/Sony flash shoe, so if you have old Sony flashes you will need an adaptor. The newest Sony flashes are built the new flash shoe. The camera also has a built in flash, instead of the screw on model on my old NEX 5n.
