After review of Sony a99 II, thephoblographer has also complete the full review of Sony Alpha a6500, the flagship APS-C mirrorless camera from Sony. The Sony a6500 is in stock at most US stores, you can order now at B&H Photo Video & Adorama.com & Amazon.com.
The Sony a6500 is a really solid camera. In fact, I feel like the Sony a6500 was rushed in many ways. Is it a good camera? Sure. Is it a fantastic camera? In many ways yes, but I personally feel like Sony needs to start doing some things to boost the mojo of the a6000 series.
- Fast autofocus in most situations, but perhaps this is best showcased when using some of the newer prime lenses
- Sony is trying to do things a bit different with a touchscreen
- Great feeling in the hand
- Simple to use for the most part
- Great image quality up to 25,600 ISO
- Survived being shot with in the snow
- They’re trying, but that touch screen isn’t so up to par as what the competition offers
- The a6xxx series of cameras desperately need a third exposure dial
- They also need a thumb joystick to make focus area/point selection easier
