APS-C Digest: The Sony NEX-6 and Pentax K-5 II* show (mostly)

We conclude the Cameraholic Digest trilogy with a look at APS-C sensor-size digital cameras. The previous two parts of the trilogy were posted previously: Full Frame DSLR Digest and Smaller Sensor Digest (M43rds and smaller - we need to find a good euphemism for smaller so as not to offend fans of this segment; Efficient Sensor size? Compact Sensor size? Forward-thinking Sensor size?).
