Sony A7 III vs a6500 – The 10 Main Differences

Share on FacebookPin on PinterestShare on StumbleUponTweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedIn

The full-frame Sony A7 III is the brand’s latest full-frame E-mount model and also the most well-rounded in the range thanks to its brand new 24MP sensor, impressive number autofocus points, 5-axis in-body stabilisation and 4K video with full pixel readout. In fact, some are already calling it the “Mini A9” for the photographer on a budget.

But what about the a6500, the flagship camera of Sony’s APS-C range? It too can be called an all-rounder, as it incorporates many similar specifications to the A7 III – albeit inside a flat-topped body – so it is only natural to wonder how the two compare.

In the following comparison preview, we’re going to be answering this very question by looking at the ten main differences between the new A7 III and a6500. As always, if we get the chance to test the two cameras side-by-side for an extended period, we will update this preview to a full comparison complete with sample images and personal feedback.
