Anyone know when this will come back ;(
910 users requested it man ;(
Will the camera be covered by sony warranty?
That's the same price as Best Buy...
I own this camera and the kit lens. Paid €620 for it here in Holland. You couldn't get it for much less, even now. Been a great camera and the kit-lens is maybe not the best, but surely it's useful. All in all a great shooter. I did buy a Sigma 1.4 30mm prime for it and it also perform well. For those interested in seeing some shots taken with this camera, check out the link below.

Anyone have an idea where I could get these cheaper? (preferably in the UK) since it seems most people have gotten it for better steals.

If you aren't dead set on it being brand new CEX are a good deal, i picked one up with kit lens for about £360 i think it was. Camera was fully working, just the box was a bit beat up
I hope this means we'll see some e-mount lenses drop soon 😉 maybe some fast primes?
My local walmart had these on sale not long ago, clearing out old stock or something like that. I paid about $250 for this and a Nikon D3300 and I would have easily paid $500 for the A6000.
With amazon prime I can get this same camera and lens for $598 with 2 day shipping. Yes I could save $30 here but considering that I ordered a nice monitor on this site and it took me 2 months ish to actually get the monitor, it makes me hesitant to buy here. Other orders from here have been at least a couple weeks in transit which I understand but if I am going to justify waiting weeks to months for the item I buy here the savings need to me more substantial than $30.

Same, too long of a wait for not much of a savings. I got a deal on headphones here but by the time I got them the real reason I ordered them was past so, not sure it was worth it.
It is still cheaper in my local shop...
This is one of the best cameras you can buy for under $1000. It has a solid sensor, a good selection of lenses, and is capable of adapting even more. The kit lens, while not the best optically, is compact as hell.
Unfortunately, this is not a great price for it. It has been as low as $450 before.
Price is not that good ... you can have it anywere for about the same price.

$499 at your local Best Buy, is just one example. Just look online and it's available for $500 and under from a number of sellers.
Hi! I have this camera, so if you have any questions, feel free to ask. It has been a fantastic entry level camera for me, and would be a great entry into mirrorless or DLSR veterans. I will say that I got this camera for about 150$ more, and got the 55-210mm zoom lens with it, which I would recommend above this deal, just because the zoom lens is a GREAT value. If you aren't interested in any tele-photography though, obviously you can skip that. Its true its not Micro4/3, but the emount system has some great (but expensive) glass available, and the APSC sensor is a little better in low light. If you want 4K, this is not the camera for you, I would recommend one of the more recent models (a6300/a6500), or a Lumix setup instead.

I have an a6000 too so I'll add some info here If you are adapting a lens with electronics (auto focus, auto apature etc) the adapter will be up around $100 because it needs its own processor to convert sony emount data to canon or whatever you are adapting to. If you are adapting a vintage lens without electronics they adaptor will be $10 I have an old canon 50mm f1.4 and it is great, you can get them for $50 off ebay and you'd be paying 20x that for a new one. Yes it doesn't have stabilisation or anything, if you want in-body stabilisation you have to go up to the a6500 which is quite a bit more expensive, most native glass has stabilisation though and the prices are coming down, actually the kit lens that comes with this one is stabilised and its actually an all-round great lens.

Sounds like a very nice entry for you!
Remark; would say that my personal view regarding lens is that, with this kit lens, you will get a much broader range of image versatility- that 16= a darn wide angle shot capability. I use my 7-35 on my a900 and a700 mirrorless rather CONSTANTLY. Ultra wide lenses can be pretty expensive, I have seen the 55-200's go for less, especially used, which is where I tend to pick up spare lenses.
Welome to the world of DSLR! :)
what was the price of this drop last year anyone know?
This camera was yesterday on amazon.es or amazon.de (don't remember) in offer per 529€
Not sure why you'd go Sony over micro 43. Ok, the sensor is slightly larger, but not dramatically so. M43 has more lens options by many times over, which drives down prices and increases secondary market availability by far. MD offered both the Olympus E-M5 II and M10 II for great prices. In my opinion, go with one of those

To me, that makes a lot of sense. I regret my initial post, no need to bash the Sony's when I don't have experience with them--I'm a Canon and Olympus shooter. I love the m43 bodies from Olympus, especially the EM5 II, but that's just me. Threads are full of people espousing the merits of each, but at the end of the day, you go with the one you feel comfortable with and which produces the image quality you like. Enjoy!

That slightly larger sensor allows you to pull a lot more from the highlights and shadows of RAW files. The lens system is actually pretty comparable: 71 vs 86 according to Camera Decision. This doesn't even account for the vastly larger selection of adaptable lenses. The Sony 6xxx series also has about the best one-handed ergonomics on the market imo.
M43 has some really nice cameras and lenses too. In particular, the constant aperture zoom lenses are fantastic and more compact than what can be offered by larger sensor systems. Sony doesn't do well at this and I would definitely recommend M43 for people most interested in zoom lenses on a compact system. There's plenty of shooters who will be very well served by the outstanding performance and value of Sony though.
Can we do a group buy for a6300? As now a6500 is out, a6300 should be able to get a good price
This is a very good camera on a budget. I think they should make it even more budget-friendly for all of the photographers, videographers and filmmakers out there who want an amazing camera.
If you are in the market for this range camera, get the 6100. I have the 6000, love it but have had 2 lens die on me, just out of warranty. The 6100 adds a lot of features the 6000 should have had. 4k video, mic input just to name a few.

I got my camera yesterday, Damaged.

how bad is it?
We are still in contact with the vendor and just awaiting updated shipment estimates from them for the final few remaining units. We have a call scheduled first thing tomorrow morning and should get a bit more visibility in regards to when we can expect these in our warehouse. We will update the group as soon as these are on the way.
Again, we understand that the additional wait time is undesirable. If you would prefer to cancel your order, please contact Community Support using the “Contact Support” button in your transactions page (massdrop.com/transactions).
You can expect an update from us on 4/4 or sooner if something comes up.
If you have any questions, please visit our Help Center (massdrop.com/helpcenter).
Should there have been some paperwork in the box? The camera came with no warranty card, no quick start guide, and no owner's manual. No paperwork of any kind other than the packing slip. And, what does "manufacturer's 1 year limited warranty covered by Massdrop" mean? Are these grey market cameras?
We've continued to coordinate with our warehouse team regarding shipment of the remaining orders and they've informed us that after taking inventory of everything received it appears that the first shipment did not contain all units as originally thought. Rest assured, we've reached back out to the vendor and expect to have the final few units in our warehouse shortly. We will continue to follow up and update the group as soon as everything is received and shipped back out.
We understand that the additional wait time is undesirable. If you would prefer to cancel your order, please contact Community Support using the “Contact Support” button in your transactions page (massdrop.com/transactions).
You can expect an update from us on 3/30 or sooner if something comes up.
If you have any questions, please visit our Help Center (massdrop.com/helpcenter).
The group's order ended up arriving earlier to our warehouse in New Jersey and our team is now hard at work breaking down the shipment into the individual packages. We anticipate everything being prepared and shipped back out by the end of this week and we'll be sure to update the group once we've confirmed complete shipment.
We are thankful for your continued patience and you can expect an update from us by the end of the day Pacific Time on 3/25 or earlier if anything comes up.
The vendor informed us that the group's order was picked up and is on its way to our warehouse. Based on the tracking provided, the order is scheduled to arrive 3/21.

We've been in touch with the vendor and they've let us know that they are still working to gather and pack the group's order for shipment to our warehouse in New Jersey.

Thanks again for joining this drop! We have submitted the group's order with the vendor for the Sony Alpha A6000 Mirrorless w/ 16-50mm Lens and they are working hard to prepare it for shipment.
As soon as the group's order is ready at the vendor's location, they will send the bulk shipment to our warehouse in New Jersey where our warehouse team will break it up into individual orders and ship them. The current estimated ship date from our warehouse is 3/21.
We will keep the group updated throughout the fulfillment process. You can expect an update from us by the end of the day Pacific Time on 3/16.

I am new at this. There only seems to be about 100 dollar savings over Amazon which also provides free two day shipping for Prime members. Am I correct? Also, I had held off on a mirrorless thinking that the viewfinder response time was shall we say, not quite perfected yet. Is that a problem?

@Tyler.HThanks for your reply. I suspect I should clarify something, I fell upon this site quite by accident when my coverman asked me to do some research for him on spinning tops. Neither of us had come upon the site before. I did a little reading and have a better understanding of its purpose which I guess simply put which would betray my coverman's age, is like that of a cooperative...a larger number of people using bargaining power to obtain things closer to a wholesale price. He use to do this sort of thing himself back in the 80s and 90s by creating what he called a universal corporate entity...that is the name was such that nobody had any idea what kind of items were sold! So, he could get just about anything wholesale...well almost :-)
I think it's fair to say everyone that knows of Massdrop will shop around before buying so people are more aware of prices. If it's cheapest on Massdrop, then people will buy from it, plain and simple.
It's hard decision with international delivery cost it's only a saving of 55 dollars.
