Some customer reviews of Sony Alpha NEX-6 (Body Only)

Most helpful reviews

Peter, West Drayton Aged 75, experienced photorapher.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Excellent resolution, very good pictures. Comfortable to hold. Love the EVF. Fits into a large pocket with the 16-50mm lens attached. Light weight - one of the reasons I "downgraded" from a DSLR, although in fact, I get better pictures from the NEX6, so it turned out to be an upgrade. I really like this camera, despite the bad points.
Bad points:
Thoroughly confusing menus. Dreadful video record button - almost impossible to start recording with camera held to the eye. Battery life not great. Raw conversion software could be improved to simplify workflow.

Robert, Sandown

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Early days yet but found it very easy to use with excellent results. I shoot in raw and use Lightroom 4. Indoor and low light shooting has proved extremely good.
Bad points:
Lack of dedicated lenses, to achieve good macro work I have had to buy an adapter and the 100mm alpha lens.
