READ BEFORE BUYING!
After numerous emails to Massdrop, I was provided with clarification regarding how defective/malfunctioning units are handled. This is international spec, meaning there is no warranty provided by Sony, and if the unit does not work properly at any point, Sony will do nothing for you. Additionally, Massdrop does not provide a warranty for this item. So if anything stops working or malfunctions after 30 days have passed, Massdrop will do nothing for you. Not worth buying IMO.
Below is a direct quote from the email I received from a Massdrop representative: "There was no warranty listed on the drop page for the Sony Alpha a6300. This means that it did not include a warranty through Massdrop. Because the camera is International Spec, the manufacturer will most likely not honor its warranty making this camera have no warranty. If a defect became apparent after the 30 day reporting period for this item, we would be unable to offer further assistance."

Are there any reviews or reports of this happening with any massdrop item? I've been searching for situations and reviews where that played out (international spec camera went defunct after 30 day return window) but I havent found any yet.

Thanks for posting these!
not worth deal.
When will massdrop clarify international warranty issues? What's the coverage like for Aus? Can we deal with Sony directlY? this is a major buying factor for me

Fair enough. They used to be clearer with this. I recall a Seiko I purchased had a "1 year massdrop warranty", which is sorta referenced here: https://helpdesk.massdrop.com/hc/en-us/articles/115003723748-Do-products-purchased-on-Massdrop-have-a-warranty- Too bad they don't have that anymore.
Generally speaking, if a product has a warranty, or fails within 30 days (for things that don't have a warranty) Massdrop will either replace the unit (if there's inventory) or simply refund the full cost of the purchase.
Nice that Massdrop selected the item I polled? Do get anything :) .. Purchased the A6300 last year .. Great camera.
I bought this from Adorama last summer. Great camera. Fantastic video. good camera, probably the best camera for the money in this range, believe me. ~Trump


But seriously it's a great video camera
7% off with 50$ shipping... No thanks
How does "International Spec" affect warranty issues? Do we just contact Massdrop, and then Massdrop contacts Sony? Will we ever be dealing with Sony directly? Is it the coverage in any way different than if it were a US warranty? Looking for a Massdrop representative to answer this; thanks in advance!
I've never bought a came off Massdrop. Are these greymarket? And what's the average turn around time? I've heard people wait awhile.

I highly doubt they're grey-market. Just a mild like $125 discount. Pay the extra and get it from Amazon much quicker, or save a bit and wait here much longer. This drop is basically like buying the body full price, but getting the kit lens free. Pretty nice! And to give you a wait estimate, this one will take around 3 to 5 weeks most likely. I ordered a monitor off of here Feb 28 and am expecting to HEAR an update on March 13th...not even a ship date. But, I saved like $160 so I'll wait for that

They are listed as international spec, and therefore will be grey market. You will need to go through Massdrop for warranty, instead of Sony, as Sony will not service this camera in the US.
So many pictures of the 16-70 Ziess lens... Haha!
wrong lens in 2nd image.

What's the warranty on this?
If you don't care about in body stabilization or touch screen focus then this is a good buy. Otherwise it might be better to upgrade to the a6500.

I have this camera and it's absolutely amazing for the price. I have also tested the a6500 model and the touch screen option doesn't really worth the upgrade. On the other hand, both IBIS and the bigger buffer can easily justify spending the extra cash.
