Honestly, if you can afford it, I'd highly suggest you upgrade to the a6300 or a6500. There's a noticeable boost in image quality, especially in lowlight, as well as dynamic range. The a6000 is starting to get really long in the tooth and the EVF sucks; it's far better on the subsequent models. That being said, you can still take great photos with the a6000. I used one for a year before upgrading to the A6500 as I needed the stabilization for lowlight.

Just finished piecing together my 6500 after buying an open box model without any lenses and it's fantastic. The one recommendation I have is get a couple extra batteries and an external charger.

Price gap is huge for very little Imho. I shoot a6000 along with an rm3 and the a6k never ceases to impress me that a little $400 camera can do so good.

I recommend the ef mount 55/1.8za or the sigma apsc lenses if your into primes imho

The $200-300 jump to the a6300 is extremely worth it, it's pretty much equal to the jump from the A7 II to the A7 III in terms of what you get. And if you're going to be using Sigma's f/1.4 primes, you'll want the jump to the $1100 a6500 anyway for IBIS.

You get substantially better AF, a better EVF, much better build quality with a much stronger mount, ​some level of weather-sealing, better compatibility with 3rd party lenses, continuous eye-AF, more custom buttons, and various other menu options. Not to mention somewhat cleaner high ISO performance. The a6300/a6500 are pretty usable at 6400.

A lot of it Sony could bring the the a6000 with a software update, but they don't, so it's worth the premium.

It's not like there's any better mirrorless camera system you can get for a $1000 body. Sony has the best image quality, most features, and a strong lens system now as well now that Sigma is completing its trio of 16, 30, and 50 primes.

For people having a full frame system and just use apsc camera as an lightweight solution, A6000 is more than enough.

Oh, for sure. I'm talking about people wanting a catch-all APS-C system.

meh... depends upon your needs. The a6000 is a great camera - and for the price difference, often not worth it for many people. Hard to say if you don't really know their situation.

I'm completely a newbie in the camera world. I'm looking to travel to a few countries this fall. Is this a great camera to get? I've been also looking at the sony rx100 v for its pocketability. Any suggestions is appreciated!

I want to get a Sony Mirrorless for video, any suggestions? Plan to use it with a gimbal.
Would like to have just one lens that can be used when I upgrade to a A7III a few months later

are the kit lens good as a starter?
