All their 4K Cameras overheat BADLY, if this one doesn't they would have announced that by now by saying something like 'improved heat dissipation' etc but nothing which means it's totally unreliable for professional video!

Haven't seen many reports of overheating on the A6300 since the new firmware came out, to be honest. Don't know about the other bodies.

I bought and kept the A6300, and I'll be the first to admit that it paid itself off quickly.

Regardless, you fail to realise that the A6300 has only been on the market barely eight months - and even then, much of those eight months were spent in back-order due to the Kumamoto earthquake. There is no consistency in this new model's release date whatsoever.

For Sony to release a superior successor so soon is somewhat arbitrary and irrational.

Not when the GH5 is about to come out with its superior specs. It makes perfect sense to get some more sales in while they can.  Its essentially the same camera as the 6300 with upgrades which explains how they managed it so quickly.  The added ibis makes people think twice about getting the G85 and GX85 too.  The price pushes it too close to full frame for my comfort though.

Which? The A7s II and A7r II are double the price (3450€ in Germany), the Canon 5D IV even more.

It's kinda harsh how much more expensive it is in Europe though. 1700€ vs 1400$

Thats where I am.  To be honest I havent fully researched the price of the A7 cameras rescently. Maybe im comparing the 6500 price in euros to the A7x prices in dollars.  Either way its certainly not as budget friendly as the G85. And underspeced compared to the GH5.

With a speedbooster you are not far away from full frame looks either.

Wow, that was a very quick cycle (even for Sony!) of: a6000 => a6300 => a6500

Sounds like an A6300 with IBIS and Touch Screen

Sweeeeeeeet, that is the most important thing!

Wellllllllll, and no overheating....   but we won't know that until it hits the hands of users.

The GH5 is at least half a year away, which in the camera business is a long time. You won't know what the scene will be like at that time. And if other companies are playing the same game as Panasonic (pre-announcing cameras) then there will always be something better on the horizon.

I cant see sony going 10 bit with 4k in stills cams. Not in the next 4 years, nevermind half a year.  The FS7 doesnt even have 10bit 4k.  Regardless of how long the GH5 will take I think the fact that it's comming is why sony have released this upgrade so soon.  I mean lets face it, they could have waited another year and then called it the A6300 mkii.

Even if it overheats this is a great bcam for my a7s2. Touch to focus is great. I love it on the a5100.

 

That is why I purchased the a5100 over the a6000!
(plus it was cheaper... :D )

I'm not too bothered! :-D Have sworn not to spend any more on cameras this year, no matter how tempting it is.

Instead any money I spend will be exclusively focused on audio gear, just a few minutes ago I made a purchase from B&H (incredible how easy it is to spend over a hundred bucks on a few odd bits and pieces here or there....):

Ok I admit that BNC cable though is camera gear.... oops, my bad! But I've been wanting that coiled cable type since forever ago to use with my F3 to Atomos recorder.

Ordered a handful of other audio gear tonight from ebay as well, all these little costs add up :-/ It isn't just the big expenses (like a Sound Devices recorder) that kills you, but the death from a thousand paper cuts of all the other little things you need.

In the midst of an email order with Oscar SoundTech about buying a few of their lavs, poof... that will make a few more hundreds of dollars disappear!

What the hell??? Why would you say that, that is so wrong. Of course it has 10bit 4K!!
(unless you are thinking of the much cheaper FS5??)

The FS7 shoots 4k 10bit 422 in XAVC-I. That's the big difference to the FS5.

Crazy you say this about any camera that would cost over 1k dollars. You shouldn't have to spend that much money and have to worry about any equipment over heating in that nature.
