If interested in the Sony A6XX series cameras I would suggest considering spending the extra money for the 6300 or even the 6500. They have the same sensor as the 6000 but better ISO performance, AF and weather sealing (when used with a weather sealed lens). The 6500 adds in camera stabilization.

A6500 is around $1200, do not remember if 2 lens kit or not thru buydig.

I bought a6000 couple yrs back and moved to FF a7rii with G-master lens, but personally I do not like the skin tone from Sony camera, more then half the time skin tone is lot different then I like.

I typically use B&H photo out of NY and buy body and lenses as separates to get the glass I want. Not sure what they have in kits but I am thinking of picking up a 6500 and using my 6000 as a back-up.

I tend to shoot more subject focus or action shots so I like the APS-C crop. I am not familiar with Sony FF cameras but the skin tones from my 6000 look similar to I was seeing out of my Canon 40D with Canon "L" lenses. I have the G master 100-400 which is an incredible lens. I also shoot with the 16-70 Zeiss which I like but I think it is a tad soft.

I use both B&H as well as Adorama. Adorama is little more price flexible in my opinion.

I have used Zeiss and Gmaster glasses on a6000 and a7rii but had hard time keeping up with the colors. I have also used Canon and Sigma glasses with MC-11 adapter, again not much success. Finally give up and got 5d mark IV. Still have Sony gears but using less. Most of the skin tone problem I had was with wide open lenses.
