Melchiorum: To me Sony has always treaded right at the border line of "worth a purchase", but kept failing to cross it. They keep adding good and useful features, but by then there are more appealing alternatives available.

With A6500 they have addressed two of the four complaints I had about A6300:
+ Touchscreen - yay!
+ Stabilization - hell yay!
- Same rolling sh*tter - boo!
- Almost the same controls/menu - boo!

Unfortunately, these two improvements aren't worth the increased price (they should have been in A6300 to begin with) in my opinion. The lens selection is still an issue. The video capabilities are still hindered by horribly slow readout. The controls are still toy-like.

When there are gems like X-T2 available for the same price and E-M1 II on the horizon, I just don't feel like Sony A6500 is quite worth it. Fuji is better for photography, E-M1 II will be better for video, sports and wildlife shooting. Both have better and more glass.

Youre saying a joystick is better than touchscreen? Ok buddy. Maybe you should trade your touchscreen smartphone for a joystick enabled one then.

Everythingis1: I'm starting to believe that either a lot of people who use this website are idiots, or there are just a huge amount of paid marketers constantly trash talking everything about their competitors on the most popular websites. It just doesn't make any sense for their to be so much non-nonsensical trash talk about freeking digital cameras.

Lol... listing a con of a camera feature that you dont even use... makes sense.

This camera doesnt have gps! I dont use it but yeah!!!

steelhead3: Why do the poor complain about Sony and its pricing; they have a lot of other cameras to choose from like the M from Canon or the 1 from Nikon. They all take pictures.

Mommy I want it now!!!!

Ordered a 6500 just the other day.. first in line.

Melchiorum: OK, look, I don't dislike Sony or anything and I appreciate their input into the sensor development, but... 1700 euro? That's just getting ridiculous. A6000 was half that price when it was released and it offered features unrivalled by other matufacturers in mirrorless market at that range.
Then we got A6300 whoch was more expensive, but again, it offered good features for that (mainly in video department).

A6500 does nothing new apart from marginally improving the A6300 spect. And they ask 1700 euro? Sony is going the Canon route here. They got their piece of cake in mirrorless market and now they are just inflating prices for each subsequent product. And the specs aren't even that good.

300 shot buffer
Faster af
5 axis ibis
Better video
Less video jello

Yeah youre right... not really

photogecko: I wish they'd make a better body, the a6000 body while compact for what it provides, has cheap feeling buttons, a crappy wheel and only a single dial. It doesn't feel like a very premium product which it most certainly should at over $1000.

A6000 has 2 dials

PazinBoise: I wish my X-T2 had IBIS...oh well, can't win 'em all.

As many other have stated the a6500 is what the a6300 should have been in the first place.

A6300 isnt being replaced.

Whats the af sensitivity??

I thought paying $1600 for my Sony 50mm 1.4 was crazy. Until I saw what kind of quality came from it. Well worth the money.

After my 85 GM, this 70-200 is on my list.

The prices are fair, given the optical performance.

-4ev pdaf... 8fps with low blackout, 12fps, body as small as a77, 42mp and 4k... Wow Sony, I'm buying. This will probably be the lightest big body FF, again.

So funny to see people defending the Canon cameras rolling shutter, while its unacceptable on a Sony a6300.

Grab your popcorn.

mezastel: Canon's 70-200/2.8 II is $2000. Why is this more expensive?

Canons lens is 6 years old, when it was released cost $2500.

Wait til you see canon version 3, might hit the 3k mark.
