Jefftan: 507 gram is a real turn off for an APS-C mirrorless with no in body IS
even DSLR Nikon D3400 weight only 400 gram
Sony A6300 also 400 gram

507 gram!!! Why not use a Nikon D3400, sure cheaper and more lens choice

lightweight should be the main selling point for mirrrorless
have value or not, I am not sure

Jefftan: What is the advantage of using X-Trans?

I hear lower noise than Bayer (only supposed advantage I know) , Is that really true

also no AA filter, suppose (just suppose, i hear the opposite, mush detail) more detail

What is the truth, any serious test?

surprising no serious test i know of try to find out the truth
using the suppose best program Iridient to find out
if X-trans really good or not

JD99: With the touch screen, can you zoom in and move when reviewing images?

Can u set image review to automatic zoom for all image?
so can check if image blur by hand shake

if can. would be a very useful feature

Jefftan: m5 can't be a serious competitor
no 4k , no in body IS not the biggest problem

Biggest problem is sensor. If I am spending serious money, $1000
M5 an inferior sensor is out of question
Also I can only bring 1 camera, no way bring one with an inferior sensor

Check DXO 80D vs A6300 sensor, no comparison
For serous APS-C mirrorless can only choose X-T2 or A6500
If u don't like X-tran there is no choice

not a good thing. I wish more choice but unless Canon sensor tech catch up
can't consider it

"color depth" in DXO score is more important than most know
I take the same nature scene with NEX-5N and GM1

GM1 1.3 bits lower "color depth"
I see significant less shade of green color pick up by GM1

Slightly different shade of green (darker green or lighter green) which can be tell apart in NEX-5N shot become the same color in GM1

Significant? it is very significant to me
especially when I look at it side by side with my NEX pics

I often hear many said MFT is enough, different people have different standard
Also all artificial scene has less color variation than nature scene

Never use a Canon, can't comment but 0.8 bits lower Color depth most concern me, much better than 2.1 bits lower in GM1 (all compare with A6500)

can only carry one main camera, I want the best sensor
Again, using APS-C rather than full frame is already a big compromise
demanding photographer must choose the best APS-C sensor

I am in landscape and at F8 most lens similar
I value sensor more than lens

Actually I don't argue with Canon fans, if there is no M5 there is probably no A6500, competition is good

I won't be surprised if M5 would sell more than A6300/A6500, Just the Canon name will sell

But I won't consider unless sensor tech match Sony

As a landscape photographer I am especially concern about DXO "color depth" score
That's how many color a sensor can capture, if one eye is sensitive look at how many shade of green in a real nature scene

80D vs A6300 color depth is 0.8 bits lower
dyanmic range 0.5 Ev lower

If one don't go full frame and use APS-C as compromise, than better get the best APS-C sensor

Sony maybe weak on lens but with metabone adapter can use EF lens and now with IS

There is still hope, maybe Canon can up the performance of M5 sensor compare with 80D

JunzInc: The A6500 has been #2 of the best sellers list on cameras at B&H ever since preorders started. It is in Top #3 on Amazon.com too. People in the US are definitely interested and making the decision to buy (preorder) the camera. Sonys definitely doing something right, atleast in the US

" A99 II is selling fewer units than used Canon XT's and XTI's, selling less than certain neck straps "

Those attack Sony not caring their customer has no point
other company would kill A-mount long ago

These 8 months gap between 6300 and 6500 is an accident
A6300 get delay, real gap probably at least 1 year
I am quite pleased being a Sony customer since 2011 NEX-5N

Most surprising on Amazon list is $3500 camera can be #4 best seller
Canon EOS 5D Mark IV

An $1000 A6300 or $1400 A6500 would never sell well
those that really sell are under $600

$1000 plus camera sold in much fewer number and can only compare among themselves
I think Sony A6300/6500 sold very well among expensive camera

Jefftan: What is really improved from mark IV
look the same to me

Anyone know?

I agree there is lots of upgrade form mark IV mostly in video
for someone care only still, mark III is the same

The best pocket camera is Ricoh GR II
not this

Or get a Panasonic GM1/5 with 14mm F2.5 pancake lens
or get a A5100 with Sony 20mm F2.8

there are lots of tricks like slow motion video
but bottom line in terms of IQ , it is a very small sensor camera

Should thank Canon M5 for this
People complain after 8 months, A6300 is replaced
Actually this is not Sony original plan, if no Canon M5 there will be no A6500 now

maybe in 2018 not 8 months
Thanks Canon, competition always nice

Paul Petersen: At this price why not spend another 200 USD on an XT-2 that is weather sealed, and has an amazing lens system and control layout.

even same price why would I want XT-2
5 axis IS !!
This is a big deal

This camera also weather seal too

Speechless, called me a fanboy
I can't find any fault
to me a perfect camera

As perfect as a APS-C camera can ever get (unless one day a new sensor type to replace Bayer)
lightweight with all features one can ever wanted

What more can one ask
