Sony A6500 £1129 (£979 UK stock after cash back) Amazon

Found 22nd Oct
I'll start by saying that yes, you can get this camera cheaper if you buy from a grey importer - but not by much.

Amazon have just lowered the price to £1,129 and Sony have £150 cash back, taking it down to £979.

Camera has gone out of stock, but Sony winter cash back is on until January, so plenty of time. Lowest price it's ever been available at, with the next cheapest at £1,279 (before cash back).

Body only, no arms or legs included.

Ah, but can you buy a better or equal camera cheaper? Bet you didn't even attempt to find out.

I bet you're a bag of laughs at parties fattyuk..

Maybe read the whole of the sentence - the bit you forgot to quote, that advises it'd be from a grey importer. You'd be naive to think there aren't advantages to buying UK stock from a very well respected retailer - especially when it's only £40 more than grey, instead of the normal £300+.

I'll vote cold too, this price is for body only. Which you don't clarify in your deal. Plus you have a picture of a camera, with a lense.

I've also not stated it comes with a lens (which you'd expect specs of in the title). Image pulled from the Amazon website by HUKD - might be worth you picking it up with them..

Why they are not posting the deal, you are. Plus they do say it's body only.

So instead of being insulted, just add a proper description. Then you will not get as many cold votes, from people expecting it to be a camera and lens.

Was much cheaper than this on prime day and will also almost certainly be reduced on Black Friday

Might be wrong, but cheapest it's showing as ever been is £1,231.91

For this money you could just get a sony a7 full frame camera.

FF not for everyone, and plenty of advantages to the APS-C E mount. Pricing one with the 20mm pancake to sit as a compact option alongside the A9.

Can’t wait until Black Friday! We won’t be able to move for all the stuff that HUKDers are saying is going to be reduced!(annoyed)
Btw there is no such thing as almost certainly...(skeptical)

At this price, better go with Canon or Nikon.

Idiot that obviously knows nothing about what mirrorless means and how this is far superior to canikons current efforts

Thanks for this. Best deal I've seen for this camera.

Price for this has dropped again to £1,039! Exclusive to prime members

Cheaper still, now showing £1029

Amazon warehouse are currently selling a 'like new' for £988. I did just that for my A6300 and it came brand new and unregistered. If you find it's new, you can register it and claim the cashback from sony so possibly £838 which is a bargain for this camera.

How sad

How sad


Why is this so pricey? What is special about it?

I'd pay the extra to get the Amazon UK warranty... Having said that, this camera is not worth the money.

You've got to smile at some of the garbage that's written on here.

While I wouldn’t go as far to say either of you are right or wrong.

Anyone looking to buy one of these. Or any other mirrorless camera needs to get hands on with various bodies.
Many feel far to small in the hand, especially with f2.8 glass attached. Also electronic view finders arrant for everyone.
However if you want compact and can live with electronic views. Then this with a neat lens would be a great shout.

Have been using tha a6000 for years and it is absolutkey amazing apart from not having a cheap zoom lens from someone like tamero

For those wondering what's so special about the A6500, or whether to go for the A7/A7ii full frame instead, there's a good comparison here:
phillipreeve.net/blo…7ii

The A7ii body is currently £999 sold by Amazon, with £200 cashback bringing it to £799 after redemption.
amazon.co.uk/dp/…FI/

I've been watching it bounce in and out of stock for a couple of days. So it looks like it's quite popular.

I'm just not sure I want to move to full frame yet...

I've just picked up a A7II on Amazon's £999 (£799 after cash back). Excellent full frame backup camera for the money.
