well it has 100 quid cashback atm so if you want to spend the extra for the features its imo worth it @ 394 after cashback
if you dont though then this is a good bang for buck

Yeah there was a thread on here saying amazon warehouse can be £100 off also. Circa £339. That's tempting...

tbh i dont think that will count for the cashback as 'used' but unsure if they state that on receipt.

It doesn't hence why people are getting away with it. On Sony website it says no used ofc. Thanks anyway!

Do you mean it doesn't count for cashback OR do you mean it doesn't show on receipt. It will help me decide, thanks!

pretty sure he means it doesn't show on the receipt so does count for cashback
unsure ofc but id have thought more posts would have been made using that 'loophole' if the case
also naturally your item may have been taken out fo the box and licked by some troglodyte before they sent it back - not sure i could cope with that

edit: meant to say, most of the white ones are gone so hurry if you want that... seems to be plenty of black for now

Lol. Exactly my dilemma.

Still. I ended up buying both. It's possible the warehouse one is pretty much new, else it'll be returned and I'll settle for the A5100. I was sure the condition was stated on the reciept, but I guess I'll see when it comes (If it does come with one that is, they often don't I've found).

It was a tread on here. 3 tried and was successful.

Amazon invoice doesn't say it's used therefore you can use cashback.

Try contacting Amazon CS as they might refund you the difference.

Gone for one, cheers.

Thanks. Good to know for future purchases.

Btw, you get an extra 10% discount on warehouse products this week, therefore if the £100 cashback is successful, you'll get the A6000 under £300 which is a stonking price especially if the camera is in good/like new condition (£440 - £44 - £100 = £296 give or take a few penny's).
If not much difference in price I'd definitely go for the A6000. I moved from the A5100 to the A7 and the EVF is a revelation. The A5100 is still an amazing camera that can produce great results though.

Ordered one

Anyone looking to add some primes to the set-up? I had wanted the A6000 but this offers good value for a family camera. Money saved invest into some primes.

I'm currently a P&S user...still learning the basics. I'm looking to buy a Sigma 30mm F2.8 as my first lens

Examples?

Remember this is an aps-c sensor changeable lens camera, it's the cheapest new camera of its type at the lightning deal price.

nowhere, it was dug up by some little whiner cos i commented on his deal - please click expire
I bought his camera. I'm no photographer but it does seem like a quality camera. I like that ican easily transfer pictures to my iPhone and also easily look at the pics on my Sony tv.

I have had digital cameras before, which have generally just left the pics on the camera. I like that thr a5000 is a bit more interactive and flexible.
