300$ less than Best Buy's Open Box. Have been looking for this camera to drop, even if it's not a super slick deal this price works for me on exactly what I need! Thanks

Anyone know if this might be covered by Sony warranty - I'm guessing probably not? Wonder what the Sutter counts are usually on these open box.

Thanks OP. I consider BuyDig a reputable seller, though I've never bought open box from them. Regardless, this is a great price and I've been waiting for a deal on this or the a6300.

I had been leaning against the a6500 since I don't really think IBIS is enough to spend $500 more for, but at this price it's basically a $270 premium over an a6300 if you want the kit lens, or only a $200 premium for body only (compared to current new prices at other legit sellers). That's good enough to bite, fingers crossed it's new condition.

This would be screamin' if it had the kit lens, which while slow, is compact, good for video (stabilized with power zoom) and takes advantage of the full hybrid AF this camera is capable of. Now I have to decide if I still want it or can get away with just primes (planning on the Sony 35mm f1.8 OSS to start, and then maybe the 60mm and 19mm Sigma 2.8s...with IBIS those should be great on this body, even for video, though you give up the hybrid AF across the frame which is kind of important for video),

FWIW, I'm getting this to replace/complement my Panasonic Lumix GX7. It's a great camera for many situations, but its AF is disappointing for action photography/videography (my main subject is my fast-moving daughter). Sony's hybrid AF is supposedly much better for this, so I'm planning for this to be my main camera now, and only use the GX7 when I want to shoot long uninterrupted video (albeit only in HD) or as a second camera when I want to do video + stills at the same time. If I find I don't use it much, maybe I'll sell my MFT gear but for now I'm planning to keep a foot in that ecosystem if Panasonic finally gets their AF up to scratch.

Edit: Crap! Buydig also has an open box with the kit lens for $1125. Should've gotten that, but at this point I'm not risking buying both and having to return the body only. Grr.

Are you trolling? If you are asking this question, then no, start lower. You don't buy Sony's most expensive APS mirrorless camera, because the features will be pointless for you. This camera is good enough to start and it comes with an introductory lens until you know what you want.

I want this camera so bad, but I don't need it. Will try to remain satisfied with A6000.

Yeah man, I'm still rocking the NEX6. I found that it makes a big different buying a good lens. I bought the SONY SEL45F18 for $450 and the pictures I took look much better. The bokeh makes the photos pop. Lots of cellphones are trying to imitate the blurred background nowadays. So you might want to invest in good lenses and wait for the price of the body to fall even more. Prices of good lenses dont move much if at all. Of course, learning about techniques for taking, using and editing photos help too!
