too tempting with the A6700 coming out LOL...hdom wrote: ↑Jun 5th, 2018 10:23 amUnfortunately the a6500 doesn't go on sale, much like all Sony gears the price stays since newer model only gets more expensive.
This is the lowest on the a6500 we have seen and the frequency of the discount (Black Friday and Boxing Day) probably means they are clearing some of stock for the next model, which is rumoured to be coming soon.
I am personally waiting for the next model - http://thenewcamera.com/sony-a6700-rumo ... ification/

It has a very good sensor with great low light so yes technically it does depending on what camera you are comparing to. However, it's the other/video features that put it at the current price point. For me, the important features were the 120fps 1080 and IBIS. The superb 4k is also something you'd have a hard time finding on cheaper APSC cameras. If you're only taking pictures though, the a6000 (which is around the $500) is more than enough imo.

First of all, image quality is mainly dependent on the handler. I know that's not what you're asking, but I wanted to make this clear in case some people think that buying a better camera automatically delivers better images.

There are also some A6500 cameras for sale on Kijiji for even less. My experience is that I've bought over half-a-dozen cameras used and have never had a problem. Cameras are built to last so the prospect of buying from a store to get a warranty doesn't entice me. Obviously, this doesn't mean that no one has had issues buying used, but with the money I've saved buying used, I can buy a camera that ends up breaking and still end up on top overall. Also, I thoroughly checked the cameras first.

I agree with that on comparing the PQ under ideal situation, you probably wouldn't be able to tell much of the difference, since they are shot in a studio with lighting of a still life.

It just wasn't meant to be! Now I'm not sure what I want to do. A7III, A6500, RX100 VI... who knows. I have trouble passing up a hot deal though.

I rarely see used a6500s for more than $150 below the price of new ones.There are also some A6500 cameras for sale on Kijiji for even less.
