Title: Sony ILCE6000YB
Post by: Icemanste on September 28, 2016, 11:00:04 PM
Hi all

Can you advise if the Sony ILCE6000YB is worth £350 seems a bit too cheap to me and does it come with 2 lenses. The product is used but like new.

Thanks for your help

Steve

It can come with two lenses. I have seen it advertised by Sony with the 16-50mm & 55-210mm. As it has been replaced by the A6300 it is going for good prices, I would say from 500 to 680 GBP used with the above lenses. It is still a good camera. 350 GBP is quite a low price. If it is on eBay, be sure to pay through Paypal and you will be covered.

Thanks I think it may be a scam as he has other stuff for sale at a cheap price like a Samsung edge for £300 think I will skip this offer. Thanks for reply

In Australia Sony are still selling the A6000.  As Charles says, the A6300 is a later model so the prices of new A6000's are very reasonable.  I would be a good way to go if the A6300 is too expensive for you at the moment...john

You are correct Rex, my apologies. Merely semantics but it has been replaced as the top end of the E Mount (APSC) system by the A6300.

Just a update seems as if it was a scam from a seller on Amazon he wanted me to pay £301 by bank transfer I have been in touch with Amazon and they confirm don't pay anything. Continue saving then.

Amazon looks like one of the cheapest places new for the A6000 according to Camera Price Buster

or London Camera Exchange where if £1 more, but comes with an extra year guarantee,

(Also always worth checking what LCE have second-hand, they do check stuff reasonably carefully when they buy, and offer guarantees)
