The Sony A6000 series cameras have been best-sellers for Sony, and with the launch of the new Sony A6100 and A6600 models in 2019, Sony had six APS-C mirrorless cameras on the market. Now, in 2023, the family has got even bigger with the launch of the flagship Sony A6700. So how come all seven models are still on sale today? And how are you supposed to work out which one to buy?
