p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · a6300 pricing in light of the a6500?


I was literally on the cusp of placing an order for an a6300. And now I see the a6500 has made an appearance on B&H.

I still want an a6300 but I'm wondering if I wait a couple weeks if the price will drop due to the new a6500 release? Or are they different enough that the current pricing will remain the same?

What would YOU do?

I'd wait a few weeks u til the used A6300's drop to $750 and pick one of them up. I see zero reason buying a new 6300 now.

The 6300 should be showing up in the local Salvation Army store any day now.

Wait a few weeks there are a bunch in the board now. Me I'll get a 6500 at some point. I was thinking 1300 was fair. 1400 I will still get it but 1300 sounds better in the market over the 6300 at 1k

I don't think you'll see the price of the 6300 drop, I think they are positioned different. If you're lucky you'll see 898 instead. So is IBIS and high frame rate worth $400-$500?

I'd agree used prices should drop to $800+-.

Yup, Sony has a habit of marketing multiple iterations of the same line at the same time. The A6300 was considered a higher tier to the A6000, not a replacement. The A6500 is now the next tier over the A6300. Hell, the RX100 V was just announced, and you can still buy the original RX100 brand new at major retailers...

If you want to buy new then I doubt you'll see a price change for a little while. If you're looking used I think there is about to be (already has been?) a pretty decent one.

Agree! At $1300 is when I will get it. I am very impressed with it to be my second body for sure and complements the A7Rii beautifully.
