Sony has announced the Sony NEX-6, which is a new series in Sony's NEX mirrorless camera line-up. It sits between the 5 and 7 series, and is targeted towards DSLR users, with Wi-Fi built in. Sony sees the market trend of ILC (interchangeable lens cameras) reaching maturity / saturation in Sony's eyes, but with CSC (compact system cameras) continuing to grow.
