included as kit lens with NEX-6: E 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 OSS, E 55-210mm F4-6.3 OSS, E 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 OSS, Sonnar T* E 24mm
F1.8 ZA, E PZ 16-50mm F3.5-5.6 OSS (does not require firmware update).
Other lenses can be used with NEX-6 but will employ only contrast-detection AF. Additional E-mount lenses will support phasedetection AF in the future.

Making photos and movies
come to life in any light
An impressive combination for images of unsurpassed splendor
Sony’s 16.1-megapixel* Exmor™ APS
HD CMOS sensor — the same size as
found in larger DSLRs — works with
BIONZ™ image processing to deliver
images of astounding beauty. Brilliant lifelike colors, superb details and
smooth tonal gradations are all hallmarks of this renowned duo. Whether
viewing on a wide-screen TV or making
oversized prints, the high-resolution,
low-noise images reveal every subtle
nuance of a scene, be it a majestic
landscape or slice of dynamic city life.
In addition, the high resolution offers
more freedom when cropping photos
without sacrificing image quality.
* Effective pixels (approx.)
Preserving the natural beauty of delicately lit low-light scenes
Never worry about ruining the lovely
atmosphere of a warmly lit interior or
sparkling night scene. The ultra-high
ISO of 25600 lets you shoot without
flash for images that faithfully convey
the ambience of the setting, while
NEX-6’s noise reduction technology
markedly reduces noise that occurs
when shooting at high ISO sensitivity.
You’ll also appreciate the freedom
high ISO sensitivity provides, allowing
you to shoot at fast shutter speeds to
eliminate the need for a tripod or to
capture fast-moving action.

of phase-detection AF with the precision of contrast-detection AF. First,
fast phase-detection AF quickly
moves the lens to bring the subject

precise contrast-detection AF finishes
focusing. It all happens in the blink

blazing 10 fps while maintaining focus

producing exciting action sequences
with each frame perfectly focused.

Lens support for Fast Hybrid AF
The following lenses support phase-detection AF but initially require a firmware update (available from the Sony website) if not
included as kit lens with NEX-6: E 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 OSS, E 55-210mm F4-6.3 OSS, E 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 OSS, Sonnar T* E 24mm
F1.8 ZA, E PZ 16-50mm F3.5-5.6 OSS (does not require firmware update).
Other lenses can be used with NEX-6 but will employ only contrast-detection AF. Additional E-mount lenses will support phasedetection AF in the future.
