I know I read your post when you got the Sony, Jules, but at the time, it was an anonymous model to me, but since then I got myself a NEX-5 very cheaply, for the same reason as you - travel. I guess it would be a predecessor to your 6000, but without the viewfinder. I know what you mean about menus! They are interminable, aren't they? I use it quite a lot, despite that. However, after setting up the customisable buttons, it's OK. I hate not having a viewfinder though. It's a great vehicle for messing with old lenses - I'm able to use everything I can with my Canon DSLR as well as quite a few more that I can't. Oh, and I got myself a modern Sigma 30mm f/1.4 to use with it, which is fantastic.
Article 94: It's OK to drop the cow, but not as a weapon.
The menus on my Lumix GF-1 are not layers deep, but quite complex and some settings are not that intuitive.
I'm glad I bought the optional electronic viewfinder, though. Not massively high resolution, but good enough when you want to frame a shot at eye level rather than holding the camera in front of you. It's brighter in strong sunlight, too.
