Finally a deal on the a6500! That Sigma 30mm f1.4 lens is a must for Aps-c sensor e-mounts, and usually +300.
So bundle prices are good.
Sigma is also releasing a 16mm f1.4 ($450) later this month that I'm looking forward to.

...should I upgrade from a6000?

So tempted to upgrade to this from an a6000. Anyone think the 6500 body will ever get any lower than this?

In my humble opinion, I think the 6500 will drop in price. Especially if the rumors of Sony 6700 are true. I'm TRYING to hold out until March 2018 unless it gets to $1000.00 or less.

Just the cam and 30mm lens is good for daily photo?

I would say so. When I got my a6000 the 16-50 is the lens that came bundled with it. I see it bundled quite often with the 6300 and 6500 also.

More than good enough. The Sigma 30mm 1.4 is an amazing lens, search for a few reviews and samples and you'l know what I mean. Do keep in mind that it's a fixed zoom lens so you can't zoom in/out. The lens also lacks image stabilization.

Same decision... It's ~$500 more with the sigma 30mm and kit lens. 18-105 is the other highly recommended lense but that's $600, so maybe down the line...
