2.Wi-Fi
I’ve have been shooting with an Eye-Fi card for about a year and I have mix feeling about it. With the Nex, everything is great except the photos are JPG no RAW option.
Con: Can’t shoot Raw with Wifi transfer.

3.Hotshoe
I had the Nex 5N, so I had to buy an adapter. With this built-in hotshoe, I can shot with speedlights, without worrying about breaking the adapter or stripping the screw.
Con: No TTL

4.Buttons
The two buttons that has a dramatic improvement on the NEX 6 is the “Fn” and “movie” buttons. The “Fn” button is located on the right side of the “Shutter” button. The placement of the “Fn” allows a faster way to open up the quick menu of your choice, without having to switch fingers. With the NEX 5N pressing the “movie/record” was way to easy, but not in a good way. With the 6 I never have to worry about accidentally pressing the key, because its on the corner of the camera versus next to a touchscreen and “Playback” button.
Con:The “Flash” is a mechanical button.

5.Level and info
One thing that surprised me was the NEX 6 built-in level. The level help a lot especially when you need to post-process later. By using the level you less of an image to crop out and when recording you’ll know if your video is straight or not.
Con:No options to display how many minutes available for video without recording first.
