I own the Sony Nex-6 and can;’t really say enough good things about the camera. Image quality is fantastic and the hybrid sensor works really well in almost all conditions. Very low light it’s a little weak for sure, but overall excellent for a mirrorless camera and I still use mine almost everyday. Occasionally it will sit for a week or so while I review something, but then it’s either filming, testing a lens, or coming with me on a family fun day.
The bottom line is the Sony Nex-6 is one of the best mirrorless cameras ever made and is on a crazy one day sale for only $524 US! Take advantage if you’re the type to not get the latest and greatest every time it comes out. The A6000 I’m referring to of course 😉

Latest Sony Rumors
Courtesy to SonyAlphaRumors for the latest on the New Sony RX100 III and Sony Alpha A77 II. Finally some concrete looking specs!
Sony RX100 III
24-70mm f/1.8-2.8 lens
Built in View finder (SVGA OLED Tru-Finder 1440k dots)
Tiltable screen (180 degrees up)
Record in XAVC S format (Same format of the Sony A7s but with no 4K output option).
Almost same size and weight as the current RX100/M2 models.
I have been told all other specs are the same of the current RX100II model.
Price is said to be around 800-850 Euro in Europe. Should be around $800-850 in USA (US price is my guess)
This sounds awesome if you want that killer RX image quality in the smallest package possible. It now has a significantly faster lens on the tele end, which makes this an even better low light shooter, especially for video! The new video Codec is much better quality than AVCHD and the built in viewfinder and 180 degree flip screen completes the package. It has everything all in one tiny deck of cards sized package! I can’t wait to try this out asap 😉 Sony RX100 II Review This Way >> | Sony RX10 Review This Way >>
Sony A77 II
79 af points, 15 cross points
very Fast Tracking performance
12fps up to 60 Frames/ 25 frames RAW & JPG, RAW 26 frames
Low light AF, f/2.8 vertical line sensor, new algorithm
This also sounds good and perhaps they put in an hybrid sensor to make the A77 II more like the A99 as it pertains to the AF-D mode? just a guess I really have no idea, but sounds like it could be the case. 79 af points sounds like it’s on the sensor to me and the 15 cross points are the regular PDAF sensor module style which are used via the translucent mirror. Not sure about the new algorithm, but hopefully low light performance is significantly improved over the previous model is all I can say 😉
That is about it for now, but stay tuned as I wrap up the Sony Vario-Tessar T* E 16-70mm f/4 ZA OSS Lens, and wait patiently for the new Alpha A6000 to come in! The crop factor lens is a better performer than the full frame version I can tell you that for sure! Check out the highly detailed Sony Vario-Tessar T* FE 24-70mm f/4 ZA OSS Lens Review (Click Here)
