This is a great camera at a great price. While the a6000 is newer, many review sites still recommend the NEX 6 as a great option for entry level and experienced amateurs. here's one of such sites: Recommendation of the camera
If you have the EPP, you get 10% off. So, $360 with lens or $295 with body only. There is tax. Shipping is free.

These come with a 90 day warranty from Sony from order date. But you can purchase an extended 2 year warranty from Sony for 30 bucks (at the bottom of the page, look for Protection Plus. seems like a warranty similar to square trade, aka warranty is based on the purchasing price).
Price research: These hover around 400 bucks for USED condition on Ebay. Back in May, BB cleared them out, and some were able to get these for a stellar 260, but that clearance was based on regional stores and stock availability, so it was YMMV even though it was the best price.
Personally, I went with the one with the kit lens since the price difference, after the EPP, was about 65 bucks for an entry lvl lens.
If you are buying this right now, wait for the drop down chat menu and start a chat with Sony. Ask about any promotions for buying this Refurb NEX 6. They'll offer you accessories worth 15% of the cost of the camera. This most likely amounts to a SD card and case.
***I just found out about this, you have to place the order through chat to get the free accessories (they give you a special code i think). So if you've already placed an order and it's been 1 hr since placing, then you can't cancel the order (<--THAT SUCKS). so the promo doesn't really qualify for those who already ordered. sucks i know... wish i had waited. But for everyone else pondering about the deal, definitely take advantage of the promo.
