6400 is probably better than this. Still decent price.

i thought 6500 still strong. Are there any new features in 6400 than this ?
Strong price. Although if IBIS wasn’t needed would probably consider the 6400
I'm so tempted.....

6400 has the processor that can do live tracking etc. That’s the main differentiation between the two. Also 6400 has loads more phase and contrast detection which allows for fast focus etc. Higher frame per second. 6500 has IBIS but apparently the Sony IBIS isn’t all that.

flippy screen and a touch faster focus along with a few Slogs for video But the A6500 has IBS so its what ever you prefer, the A6600 is the best over all but out prices its self.

Better AF tracking/animal AF, not much else as far as I remember.

At this price, I’d take the A6500 with its IBIS, extra custom button and larger grip. The AF is already pretty damn good.
Man if I hadn't already spent loads this black friday id be all over this. Hot
No cashback on this model? Come on Sony!
Got this camera, love it, buy it!
whoa.this is a smoking hot price! i only managed to pay slightly less than this after cashback!
Its been this price on amazon spain & italy over the last week or so. Where I got from.
Oh god another temptation!

Isn’t this similar money to the A7ii body only deal? How do they stack up for someone not interested in the video capabilities? I see the full frame Sony 28mm f2 is on sale as well which is not a dissimilar price from similar APS-C primes. Hmmm.... time for another head scratch!

Full frame lenses are more expensive compared to the aps c lenses. What are you looking to do?
what would you guys recommend for lenses an all round general portrait, landscape, holiday photos

True. To be honest I'm undecided - on the one hand I'm a sucker for spec sheets, but on the other hand small form factor makes a huge difference to me on whether I bother bringing a camera at all a lot of the time. That said, I don't consider a6500 vs A7ii to be different sizes really - neither goes in a pocket, so they're the same to me.

I'm not a photographer by any means, not even an enthusiast. Auto mode every time. But I do very much enjoy getting good quality photos of memorable events, places, holidays, family etc. I use an old Sony mirrorless APS-C at the moment and one single lens is all I use with it (the 35mm 1.8 - great lens but I do struggle without the wide angle sometimes). I'm never going to carry around a bag of lenses, that's just not me, so maybe I should just put the money into upgrading to a newer version of the RX100 when the next deal comes along. But then the bokeh dream is dead

sigma 50mm 1.4, sigma 16mm 1.4, sigma 30mm 1.4 - if you can afford all 3

I was in a similiar position. I have a a6400 on the basis I would take it out more as it’s smaller than my old canon eos. I’m reality it’s just the same amount of hassle as I still need to sling it, or case it as it’s not pocketable. I then purchased a RX100VI thinking that long(ish) focal length would cover most my bases and would fit in pocket. What I didn’t account for was how quickly the aperture narrows throughout the focal length. I take a lot of indoor pics of kids running about etc and I just couldn’t get a shutter speed quick enough with the rx100, even with high ISO to be acceptable. Outside in the daylight it was fine. Currently I use my a6400 with sigma 30 1.4 and it’s great for the indoor stuff I want to do. I ended up sending the rx100 back. In an ideal world I would have multiple cameras for different occasions but I can’t afford it.

Do you have a preferred brand of lens manufacturer out of interest?

Ha yes, I'd love that. One of those rooms you see in the movies full of guns on racks and boxes of ammo, but instead it's racks of expensive cameras and lenses

Did you try any of the RX100 iii - v line up by any chance? I personally think they had the best lens from the line with the 24-70 1.8-2.8. The 200m optical zoom is a nice feature, but I think the faster lens is more useful personally.

I did consider trying the Rx100v for the faster lens and would have been more useful than the longer focal length. But then I figured I would be stuck with that focal length and that would probably annoy me. I’ve ended up just keeping the a6400 and accepting the fact I have to carry it. Now I’m trying to come up with a decent lens combination- can’t stop looking at the 70-350 :-/

.

..fits in pocket
Charges with mobile cable
Takes very good indoor and outdoor photos.
Can take high speed photos but have to set it up
Not as quickly adjustable as the Dslr but very usable that it nearly substitutes as my 24-70 lens.

Indispensable when added to one of those small Manfrotto tripods

Best acquisition in a while
