I'd forgotten about the lens correction. There's quite a few available through the Adobe Lens Profile Downloader tools though

Nex 6? Did I miss something? How do you like it?! The built in flash and viewfinder make it tempting to sell my 5n except I do like the touchscreen.

Mike, I really like the composition on that shot.

Nex 6, well I had it on pre-order as soon as I heard PDAF. The build is lighter than the 7 but well built. The focus is more accurate and responsive. It also tracks pretty well with the 16-50 which is pocketable when it retracts. I used the money from my OMD to buy the 6. There is just something about the nex line that I love. The mode dial and controls are also a welcome addition over the 5n/r. I had a 5n in the past and don't miss the touchscreen. With the EVF, you can change settings with your eye to the vf. Plus manual focusing is easy with the EVF. I would take the 6 over the 5r any day.

I went on a fisheye frenzy that whole day lol.

BTW I just got back from Best Buy, wanted to play around with the cameras and found the Sony Nex 5, not sure it's it was the N or R though lol. I couldn't stand the touch screen and found it to be a pain to work the settings. I also played around with the Nikon D3100 and found that one gave me a headache trying to navigate also lol.

Mike, going from a DSLR to the Nex menu will drive you crazy until you kinda learn it. I'm still learning the menu and still get lost from time to time. Once I set my function buttons on the Nex, I pretty much stay out of the menu. I set the top function button to toggle: AF, AF Area, WB, Metering, Creative Style. The Nex 6 & 7 are more customizable + the awesome EVF. With my Nikon D5100 I use to get lost in the menu also. I am used the Nex now and dont find it as bad as everyone says.

What did you think about the size of the Nex? LoL
