Sony announces Alpha 6500

Sony has announced the a6500, its top of the line APS-C E-mount mirrorless camera. It may look a lot like the a6300 but it's a higher spec (and more expensive) sister model.

And, given the a6300 is already one of the most capable cameras in its class, the prospect of a still-more capable model above - roughly parallel with Nikon's D500 and Canon's EOS 7D Mark II - is an exciting prospect.

It's based around the same copper-wired 24MP CMOS sensor as the a6300 but it adds several key features: most notably in-body image stabilization, touchscreen control, and a faster processor that makes the camera considerably more usable for fast-paced shooting.
