Great price for new with warranty and credit card purchase.

I bought a used one for a 100 less, but would've jumped on this. Love the camera itself. Upgraded finally from the Nex series.

It is a great camera. Small battery is probably the biggest complaint but there are many cheap after market options and chargers.

I really wanted to go with the 16-70 lens option, but too expensive for me. Even after $500 off it is still $1696 USD. I am thinking of buying used.

I agree. They have improved since the Nex days but still too much work. I also don't understand why they didn't make the settings menu touch sensitive.

How does this compare to the newer Canon EOS M line? We have a Canon T1i and a Sony SLT-A37 I'd love to replace with a single camera, but $1300 for a 4 year old camera is still pretty steep

Oh man !! that's a hot deal.
But the A6500 released in October 2016...maybe worth waiting for the successor to go on sale.

I'll probably pass, but man it's going to be a long time before the A6600 hits this price. I could almost get 2 A6500's from this deal for the price of one A6600 right now. :lol:
