It was somewhat of a surprise when Sony launched the A6500 – it hadn’t been all that long since the A6300 hit the market.
The A6500 is, in essence, a faster version of the A6300, with which it shares plenty of specifications: it features a 24.2-megapixel sensor and the same focusing system.
However, there have been a few changes. There’s a faster processor, a new 5-axis image stabilisation system and, after years of resistance, a touch-sensitive screen.Read more
