Sony NEX-6 review – Our verdict

The Sony NEX-6 mixes high-end build quality and control with a consumer-friendly feature set. The inclusion of Wi-Fi connectivity opens up the NEX-6 for a number of in-camera editing controls and direct image sharing.

All in all, the Sony NEX-6 handles well and produces excellent images, but not quite to the same standard as the NEX-7.
