Decision between a6600 vs a6400

Hi Everyone,

So recently I decided to get back into photography and will be buying either the a6400 or a6600.  For those of you who were deciding between the two, what were the primary factors that drove your decision?

Key Differences that I am aware of:

1) a6600 has a larger Grip + Battery (which makes it heavier compared to a6400)

2) a6600 has IBIS (marginal effect from what I have read)

3) a6600 has a headphone jack (no use to me)

4) a6600 has animal eye AF in video (a6400 does not - limited use for me)

4) a6400 has a built in flash (can be handy)

Even with the a6600 being on sale right now for $1200 ($200 off), I am leaning towards the a6400.  Primarily I will use it for kids softball (Sony 18-135 + Sony 70-350) and random family photos.  Possibly on vacations as well (depending on where we go).  Photographs are more likely what I will use it for compared to videos.

Thanks for the help,
