Sony a6500 camera body £949 @ Amazon

Found 24th AprEdited by:"dealmeup"
Had one of these before the A7iii and it's a lot of camera for the money. No, it doesn't have a (crappy kit) lens. Great video quality with the 6K to 4K downsampling and SLog2/3.

Currently on back order but they will honour the price. Or in stock on Prime Now (location dependent I guess).

EDIT - Camel time:

EDIT 2: John Lewis for the 2-year warranty: johnlewis.com/son…=48

Great camera, had mine for almost a year now. I highly recommend it.
Buy P20 pro phone , instead of this. Cheaper and camera is amazing.
Is that cheap?!
Good deal based on camelcamelcamel history. And competitive against retailers I've never heard of and would risk spending that much money with. So I'll heat it.

It's a decent camera - for a phone. I credit Huawei for bringing a larger sensor. But I doubt you'll be seeing them used in any sort of semi/professional environment. Apples and oranges.

The only time I've seen it for less is with Sony cashback late last year but won't be back for a while. Cheap depends on what you need but the camels seem to agree.

Any good and not expensive lens to recommend? I got prime 35mm.

Depends what price defines expensive for you and what focal length(s) you're after. Samyang are pretty decent optically if you don't mind a bit more plastic and AF noise.

I had the 35mm prime and Sigma 16mm f1.4 which were nice for low light/landscape/astro/street stuff.

You obviously have no idea of the importance of focal length.
i need to replace my nex 6, its in the last stage of its life.....was looking at the a6500, but might move up to the a7mk2 cameras
I have the a6000 which is more than enough camera for me. In fact I still use the 5N which is still brilliant

How do you fit a 500mm f4 Telephoto lens to one of them? Does the P20 pro shoot14but RAW or better? What about flashes, can it take or control external lighting?

I know what focal length is. Used lenses and mirrors at school and university. But hate the complexity and weight of these old cameras plus lenses.

was 150quid cashback around christmas which made it around 100quid cheaper than this
hopefully will be a decent amount of cashback for a summer promotion - googling seems to show end of may as a rough starter for their promos

The Sigmas are cheaper than Sony and mostly good IQ. I've got the old 30mm art. Some of the older ones don't allow you to use the all the AF features though. As mentioned the Samyang lenses have great IQ but no AF. I've got the 12mm, great for a astro/wide angle landscape. Although I love it, it's not the best camera for cheap native, full AF lenses. You can adapt but you often lose some AF and also compactness, if that bothers you.

Let me guess you travel about on an eBike and wear sustainable clothing. All whilst embracing the vegan revolution.

If your going to go all anti on us, don’t go half baked on us.

I wouldn't pay this much for the A6500 - hang on if you can. It'll come down that little bit further soon!!

Expecting the a6700 by chance? I thought the same last December and five months later...CP+ and NAB pass and nothing in this domain. I was waiting for that or the RX100 VI for so long that I gave up and went FF with the A7iii. Maybe APS-C really is dead

Judging by Sony's past pricing when a new model appears, any a6700 will come in higher at £1,500 or so leaving them making minor, if any, drops on the £1,249 usual a6500 price.

Anyway, if you need it now it is what it is. And JL/Currys have followed Amazon so there's an extra year warranty with JL: johnlewis.com/son…=48

No I'm a micro four thirds man - but I can imagine that once the A7III reaches saturation and starts getting into more peoples hands, the A6500 will come down another couple of hundred in price (body wise).

We shall see. But that A7III does look absolutely boss
