My recommendation would be the a6500. At current prices, it is the best value. It seems to deliver the best IQ across the a6xxx line, has IBIS, build in flash and the color I get from LR without much tweaking is better than that of the a6400. The a6300 is a good option, too.

It's all the same sensor, so IQ differences are in your head,

Nope, use dpreview studio scene you'll see definite differences, see crop below, at 6400 iso, more detail in the A6600 shot (see pink jacket), definite processing differences, the A6600 sensor has been tweaked and the processing and color science comes from the A9.

That is true for OOC JPEGs.

not just OOC JPEGs, you can compare the RAW files to, there are differences, definitely not the same.

I like the OOC a6400 better than the a6500 JPEGs, too. Unfortuantely, that "tweaking" doesn't translate into images from Imaging Edge and Lightroom. And the difference in color sensitivity remains.

and color is whatever you want it to be in post-processing (though reviewers praise the updated color in the A6400 generation).

I wouldn't recommend the older model this days, as you're sacrificing the autofocus magic that is the defining feature of Sony's A6X00 lineup.
