Anyone here have a XE-1? or Nex-6?

New photographer here.. Have been spending a LOT of time researching and originally I planned on buying a Nice DSLR, d600. The more time i spent reading about the new mirror-less system I believe it would be the best for me.

I have no problem bringing this with my everywhere, while its cheaper and more compact then a SLR. It wont perform like the fullframe but in the end if i have a larger album from one event do to the compact, that is fine by me.

I have gathered all the information between the XE1 and NEX6 and to me its a Draw,

pro's - hand down better still image, love the retro design, fast glass lens in the kit for (will do a lot of low light) Very drawn to it
con's - 1400$, rather bad video (not buying for video) have to order off amazon. Not sure if LR4.2 is compatible yet?

pro's - PRICE! can get the "kit" + 16mm wide angel for around 900. Good video, RAW with LR.
Con's image not quite as good as XE1, supplied lens is not fast.

Just looking for real world experience with these cameras. Any input would be helpful! thank you everyone.
