Karateka: I got the a6000 looking forward to upgrade to a6500 anytime. But when it comes to video-stabilisation it seems the 6500 still can't compete with Olympus. And the image quality isn't really bad either...is the Olympus stabilisation really that good or rather sony's so bad as shown in the video? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cE2__Xlx8Yo
That would be so annoying...

lets not forget the range of lens that can be adapted on the a6xxx cameras..A massive bonus.

Gangstar: It depends on your view I have owned the a6000 and a6300 both are easy to use and ergonomics and dial controls I have no problem the rear wheal easily converts to a shutter or aperture control... The a6500 is no different in this respect and the images it produces are fantastic even at iso 4000.... it even allows me to use my sigma 500mm f4.5 prime as well as my cz 24-70 2.8 but my favourite lens has to be the zeiss 32mm 1.8 it really shines with this lens...

"string" No Just the a6000 and a6300 The a6500 was released to quickly after the a6300 as a rule i change cameras every 4 years my full frame a99 has been with me for nearly four years... Ergonomic wise the a6500 can be configured in the same way the other a6000 series can. its not a great detraction not having a second wheel on top when you have used one. I rarely ever go's out without the a6300 with CZ 32mm 1.8 in my pocket..... Image wise the a6000 is just as good as the a6300 it was 4k view that pushed the update for me...

On article Sony SLT-A77 II Review (551 comments in total)

I have owned the a55 a77mk1 I own the a99 and the a77ii The A55 was a brilliant camera and was my main reason for dropping canon. I have been very impressed with the sony range and the a77ii was purchased for wildlife action the extra compressed crop at the centre of frame 24mp was required for shooting smaller prey such as kingfishers. The af and extra reach on the a77ii are a welcome improvement although If an a99ii had been released with 36mp with same af system I would have opted for that..early days with the a77 I have a few pics on my flicker site using a range of sony cameras in real world.. https://www.flickr.com/photos/graylinghunter1/sets/

These are also dangerous. I built two similar drones. Those rotors will carve your face or take a finger off with ease. A bit like a flying food blender but with multiple exposed blades...

On article Sony Alpha SLT-A99 In-Depth Review (18 comments in total)

I have owned previously the a55 a77 and for the last 12 months the A99 I paid £1750 new inc tax the a99 paired with the Zeiss 24-70 it a fantastic combo in fact the sony 28-75 2.8 produced stunning results but I would tell lies if i said it was on parr with the Zeiss which really pops the subject although has softness at corner edges @ 24mm is evident...Low light for my use has been great never has any problems...The flash/system shoe is the only annoyance and slight over exposure easily fixed in light room. what would I change upgrade faster AF..sensor 24mp ff is more than ample.In all I am a very happy with my a99 well done sony engineers...
