From thephoblographer:

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
  • Compact
  • 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
