I've just sold my D750 and all lenses as I found I wasn't taking it anywhere, just too big to lug around, especially on family days out.

Got myself the A6000 and the 16-50 kit lens. Just back from a weekend break in Edinburgh and i'm very happy with my choice so far, small and light but still a very responsive camera to use. Had a brief look a the jpegs (was shooting in jpeg + raw) on the laptop and they look pretty good so far. I'm sure I will look into a better lens or two but for now i'm happy and can see me getting back into photography a lot more than I have been!

Old thread revival... my son is just getting an A6000 (price match plus double cashback too good to refuse). What battery and charger are best? There's a Sun Valley one on Amazon, which I normally never use, but nw have to and need something to boost it up to free delivery!

I've always used ExPro batteries/charger from Amazon and haven't had any issues. I've now got 1 genuine and 3 ExPro and they all deliver the same performance.

I bought a 2 battery + charger pack a couple of years ago, can't remember which brand, but never given any problems.
Just check the reviews and pick one where there's a decent number, and with only a few negatives (everything seems to get some negative reviews on Amazon - the funniest one was a one star rating on an A3 cutting mat because "it was not the size expected", and they poor individual had had to go and buy an A4 one instead...)

I thought the A6300 had IBIS, seems not the case, took Sony until the A6500 to implement that, really?
Erm... If you mean on APS-C e-mount then yes really. They mostly relied on OSS. Even 35mm and 50mm primes have it.
If you mean Sony in general they've had IBIS forever lol

Of course I meant their later APSC line, my first dslr was a Sony ;) that had IBIS, or as they called it then Steadyshot - I just assumed the A300 at least had IBIS. If i ever was to switch to their APSC I'd want the A6500 then
