Having two cameras exactly the same one with and one without IBIS is weird. 

An A6200 that is really cheap like $600 seems like a good move though. 

There are such cameras. Sony sells officially most of the a5xxx and a6xxx series cameras (older A7 series cameras also). There was an offer for an a5xxx camera/2 lenses/a bag and a card for 380-480€ recently on a main chain here. There are similar offers for older a6xxx cameras for 100€ more.

Sony is very clever. They are offering too many similar cameras with small price increases, so it is almost impossible to loose a target group price-wise.

As of late, they are a bit lazy on new camera releases. They have started acting like market leaders (Canon) do and that may hurt them really soon.

A7iii was a huge release, but there are many new products in the market since then and it is not the no brainer it was upon release. They definitely need 2 different body designs for the a6xxx and A7 series. They fix a little something every year, but they still have the worst ergonomics in their respected classes.

They certainly seem to be left behind in video features and video IQ also.

They have to take some very hard decisions the next couple of years because their competitors are very aggressive (except Canon!).

I suspect that Canon's next processor, the Digic 9, may change that, based on what it's brother, the Digic DV7, can do. Sony needs to update their processor to current standards badly. It used to be cutting edge, but we are a long way from 2013 now.

Year but canon won’t allow the new processor to benefit us. They’ll keep making their cameras unusable for filmmaking. 

And no they are not saving on codec license fees!
