Oo. Camera experts, how does this compare go the a6000? Assuming it's better given double the price, but worth it for a casual user?
same as JL used to sell

Apparently this is near enough as good as the metabones. Worth getting if you use canon lenses.

It's only £200 cheaper - £450 vs £650.

For a casual user the A6000 might be the better option. Some good reasons for getting the A7 are to take full advantage of old full frame adapted lenses using manual focus, or if you're a bit more serious about photography and want to throw the background out of focus more. Search for full frame versus crop on Google and you'll come across loads of debates. Note that Sony full frame lenses tend to cost more than their Canon or Nikon counterparts, so worth comparing the cost of lenses for what you're likely to buy in future.

Worth bearing in mind that this camera was the first Sony full frame mirrorless and they've just released the third version.

Buying new Sony lenses (fe mount) for this will cost more than the equivalent focal length lenses (e mount) the A6000. I'd take the A6000 cropped sensor over the A7 unless you have a specific need or desire for full frame photography.

Not if you pretend you're in the US yesterday on eBay for 20% off, and buy from currys eligible for sony cashback

To be honest I went for the a5100 as it seems to be the same sensor, AF, lens, MP etc and I preferred the smaller form over the EVF etc on the a6000.

Thanks, sound advise. I seem to be getting excited every time I see a camera deal just lately

The A6000 is more compact, has 11 fps shooting, faster focusing that's much better with moving subjects, quieter shutter and picture quality is still pretty damn good.......would make more sense for a casual family oriented user (keen enthusiast too) than the A7 which is all about the full frame low noise and shallow DOF goodness. Put the £200 saving towards a decent prime E lens like the 35mm F1.8 OSS.

no cashback on a5100, not sure you'd get it via their ebay shop anyway would you?

Yea, a5100 only worked out 50 cheaper because of that, but just personally thought it was a better fit for casual use.

I read somewhere that you could get the cashback buying via eBay if using one of the auth dealers. Makes sense really as you get a receipt from currys/argos.
Great price for a full frame camera with a lens.
If you have a decent set of pre-digital lenses, the Sony a1 seems to be the way to go. There seem to be many many lens adapters to almost any brand of lens on ebay and the Sony FE28-70 is a useful range and gets quite good reviews
Now £899
