The Bottom Line With a lot to like and just a little to dislike, the Sony Alpha NEX-7 comes up a winner, albeit an expensive one. The Sony Alpha NEX-6 delivers an as-yet-unbeatable package of image quality, performance, and design, even for its rather high price. With a lot to like and just a little to dislike, the Sony Alpha NEX-7 comes up a winner, albeit an expensive one. The Sony Alpha NEX-6 delivers an as-yet-unbeatable package of image quality, performance, and design, even for its rather high price. As long as you don't need fast autofocus or great burst shooting, the Sony Alpha ILCE-7R is great, compact alternative to entry-level full-frame cameras from Nikon and Canon.
