Sony a6000 mirrorless camera body only (silver) £375 @ Amazon DE

33
Found 16th Jun 2016
been searching for a warehouse deal for almost a month with no luck. I stumbled upon a brand new a6000 mirrorless body on amazon.de today (sold by amazon). Cheapest I could find. Hope if helps some people.

It has a gold reward on dpreview, please see the review below, although there is a newer version a6300 with 4k video and better af etc at around £1000, this one still presents a much better value for the price and performance.

dpreview.com/rev…000

The price is roughly converted from EUR, it could be a little cheaper with a halifax clarity card etc. (EUR466.78+delivery)

price went up and then has gone down again now it's eur 469.32 + delivery

Not a bad price. The kit zoom is not worth buying anyway. Only good as a backup and for casual family travel

Sony SEL20F28 prime is a reasonable quality lens that keeps the camera cargo pocket portable, and around £200
Flipping great camera, I'm using one travelling at the moment. Outstanding... not that cheap though tbh.

To those who are unwilling to take other larger lenses with them when travelling it will be worth owning. So buying a kit will be a better option for them.

There isn't a universal travel lens. Sigma DN Art series lenses are very good and cheap.
I tend to take 19mm and 30mm with me wherever I go. And they cover most shooting scenarios for me.
Each is £130 new. You could easily buy both for under £200 second hand.

Switched to a Nex-5 2 years ago from my DSLR and one of the best things I have done, brought back so much fun to photography and kit bag is half the size, run the kit 18-55 and a 55-300 (SAL55300). Upgraded to a a6000 this Christmas and apart from the super fast AF and built in apps (I love time-laps), I prefer my Nex-5 its lighter, touch focus and feels nicer to hold imo.

I am sticking with my a6000 and there are other features I like, but if your just dipping you toe in the csc water, I'd look at picking up a second hand Nex-5N/R

I just sold my 70-200 Cannon L series (Hard decision to make) but will be buying a SEL50F18 & SEL16F28 for some macro work

i guess im looking for something for wide angle and a little zoom for close ups etc?
@Slim2k - I have Sel50 & SEL16 and I would recommend you get the 3 sigma lenses instead.
I don't have the 60mm for sony yet, but my m4/3 sigma 60mm is impressive.

Have you taken a look at the Fuji X-T10 +16-50 MKII lens. It's cheaper than the A6000 (+ lens), the 16-50 lens is sharp, can focus close and covers the 24-75mm range.
569 euros now. - £447

is this the longest you have kept a camera?

I second what zzzz said.
Sigma art are as good if not better than Sony's own lenses. I sold my SEL50f18 and went for 60mm Sigma for portraits. Don't really miss the extra stop or is of the Sony.
Sigma's 30mm could very well be welded to the body - it rarely comes off.

the downside of the sigma other than no stabilisation is that only the very centre of the frame can use phase detection
obviously depends how you use it
Been in the market for one of these A6000 since there release but yet to pull the trigger on the purchase.

eh? you used the sal55-300? with adapter?

Appologise, I have no idea why I said the 55-300, its the SEL55210 55-210 I use with it.

Yes I sold my 70-200l as I used to photograph track days and wildlife, but now focus on Macro and landscape (Mostly when travelling) hence going for a 50 & 16mm primes. From your reply I am guessing you don't agree?

In regards to the sigma recommendations, I will check them out, I own a sigma 105mm for my canon and was really impressed. Other commitments have taken over and so saving money on photography gear is always a bonus when it is used a lot less. Thanks Gents

Link to where it's 490 with a 2 year warranty + the camera is actually in stock?

Also didn't claim the deal was special. I commented in light of the fact the original deal on this thread is no longer valid.

in terms of quality the 16mm is supposed to be pretty poor - they only advantage over the 18-55 (i assume you got the a6000 body only?) is 2mm and its small
for macro you are probably going to need tubes or a magnifying filter, its sharp when stopped down a little but the minimum focus distance is not very low so the magnification isn't all that great
The 55-210 is a brilliant value lens. But mine has the 20mm on it almost all the time. Or a manual focus Minolta one....
right now prices are around £439 body or £489 with kit lens. I am waiting for any shop to do a discount, i hope that after sony starts to ship them again they may reduce the price. And my choosen lenses are going to be sigma 30mm 2.8, samyang 12mm 2.0 and sony 55-210.
Consider the 20 2.8 too. It never leaves my 5N....
the 20mm over the 30mm? Cos I dont wanna chage lenses every 5 minutes. i thought 12mm for landscape and 30 for everyday/family
It's up to you. The 20mm is a 35mm 30mm equivalent (that's a nasty looking sentence)! So I prefer a lens between 28 and 35 for everyday stuff which is what that is. At around 45mm the 30 is too tight for walking around town/everyday for me. Plus the 20 is VERY thin....
