Thephoblographer has published a new review on the Sony NEX-6. This reviewer uses Nikon D800 system and has also pointed out in the past that he doesn’t like the image quality out of the NEX-7, probably due to its high MP counting on APS-C sized sensor. So how did the NEX-6 fair in this review?
Apparently, the reviewer loved the NEX-6. This reviewer likes taking low-light shots which the NEX-7 was never know for and the NEX-6 fixed this “issue” nicely by going down in pixel numbers. (I have the same pet peeve with the NEX-7). The reviewer did admit that the NEX-6 couldn’t quite replace the D800. D800 focuses faster under low-light condition. Although he liked the EVF, he prefers the OVF even with its share of cons. He does points out that under low light condition, EVF is simply not capable of showing every details, especially when the metering was looking at some bright patches of the scene.
But at the end of the day, he concludes:
I love the image quality and I suppose I have been horribly spoiled with full frame but that would not hold me back from recommending this camera to others. I guess personally I have two extremes, a mode where I want to get the best image possible of a moment that I will never see experience again and another that is laid back and is okay with a smartphone camera. In the end if I wanted a small camera, which has an EVF, quick AF, affordable lenses and a generous amount of pixels this is the best camera for your money.
