NEX 6

Not highly scientific you understand but by nature I'm curious and when something new comes along I like to compare it.

Being injured and a little fed up I prayed to the gods and low and behold a Sony NEX 6 dropped in my lap and all I had to supply was money!!!!!!!!!

So....how does it compare to my other cameras.......well.........it isn't an A77 but it doesn't weigh anything like an A77....or cost as much.

Anyhow I blew a few images up to around 50" and cut these small sections out to show the differences trying to make them as similar as possible

1st the target frame




The samples are located just above the telephone.

Taken with the NEX 6 and a prime 50mm f1.7 minolta lens picked up secondhand for 20 around 15years ago. (using the LA1 adaptor, manual focus, with an SSM lens it would have been auto focus)





Now the NEX with the 16-50 compact lens set at 50mm





Now the A77 with a Zeiss 16-80 set at 50mm





Then I compared it to my compact, the same camera I got POTW with a couple of weeks ago.......a 16mp Sony HX9v not a bad compact by any means





....oh dear, well I always have said you can get away with murder quality wise on the net......but as I also say "horses for courses"


Comparing the A77 and the NEX the pixels are a bit greater but remember this was cropped from a 50" image 16mp compared to 24mp on the same size image -I doubt if I would see much of a difference on an A3 print.
The compact, though not bad for it's type is not anywhere near the same league


Now for the real reason for the post - someone asked a short while ago if anyone knew the Nex cameras. I hope this is of some help
