I must say that this is one of the most interesting match ups to come out in quite a while. Both cameras are of a similar size, both have the Sony 16MP sensor (Fuji's has some of their own magic fairy dust added), both use the Sony XLA OLED viewfinder (the NEX-6 having a faster refresh rate), both come with interesting kit lenses (Sony's collapsible and wide 16-50mm f3.5-5.6 vs the fast aperture Fuji 18-55mm f2.8-4) and both are premium priced in the mirrorless market.
However the Fuji is quite a bit more than the Sony. With the kit lens the Fuji is a full $400 more (MSRP $999 vs $1399). Is it worth it? That remains to be seen, but I think for Fuji it will be a stretch to show customers the extra value.
As a side bar, I've seen used X-Pro1 bodies now starting to really drop in price on the used market. Most are going for $1,100 or less now, a little under a new XE-1 with tax.
