Pulled the trigger and picked up a Sony NEX-6. Thank you guys for all the tips/help and breakdown of terms. All told, I'm in it for $900. I looked at a few different options but I'll admit, had a bias towards the Sony. I think at this time, it was the best deal. So hard to choose. I think it might be like trying to pick a liter bike, really, they are all awesome and have slightly different pro/cons, but pick the one with the colors you like the most and ride it every chance you get (sorry, I just have a deep love motorcycles and figured a few out there would get it).

Still learning to use the camera and lightroom, but it's not as bad as I thought it was going to be. Still just taking pictures in an auto mode, but looking forward to learning to shoot in manual.

Was really cool to be able to pull the rock color out. Need to work on my blending skills though, but shooting in RAW is amazing for what can be done later.

Nice shot John!

When you are ready to start futzing around in manual mode, check this site out, I found it very helpful when learning my gh3...

Based on what you stated in your original post regarding your feature criteria, I think you made a great choice with the Sony. Really nice to have a mirrorless option with the smaller form factor. There are definitely better m4/3 cameras from Oly and Panasonic, but you'll go up in price and size for sure. Very nice to be able to carry the camera in a jacket pocket and just bust it out on the skin track like a point and shoot.

If I was only shooting stills and not video, I'd have gone with the NEX7.

Looking foward to seeing some more riding shots from you!

Sorry, I'm a little late to the party but it looks like you made a great choice! I've been a Sony shooter for 6 years now and I'm currently making a go at being a pro active lifestyle photographer.

I'm really into mirrorless cameras right now and I'm shooting the big brother to your camera, the A7. I'm also into street photography and legecy lenses. That's the really cool thing about mirrorless lenses, there are a lot of cheap adapters available to mount almost any 35mm lens made in the last 75 years! This goes for Oly and Fuji too! You can pick up some older, fast prime lenses for really cheap and experiment with the different looks of the lenses. I just picked up a Pentax manual lens, 135mm f3.5 for $50! Not really fast but light, compact and sharp!

If you have any questions about the Sony gear, feel free to ask. Also, I'm very good in Photoshop and Lightroom. :)

PS: Jerrett, Sony makes all the sensors for Fuji! ........also Nikon, Pentax and Oly, to name a few.

Anyone had an rx100? (m1 specifically) I'll be coming from a Canon Powershot A720IS from 2008, so almost any current P+S will be an upgrade. Looking for something portable with good battery life. My a720 has been great, time for a new camera this winter though.
