If you've been considering a move to Sony mirrorless, now could be the best time – you can save an enormous $600 on the Sony A6500 with Sony E PZ 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS standard zoom lens.

Right now the Sony A6500 with 16-50mm lens is just $898 (opens in new tab) at B&H, which is an amazing price for this unique 24.2MP street-style body with sports camera performance and high-end 4K video capabilities.

And if you don't want this lens, then B&H is offering a body only version for a tasty price of just $798.

Whichever of these two kits you choose, B&H Photo will throw in a Sandisk 64GB SD memory card, a bag, and a spare battery.

With its 24.2MP images sensor, 5-axis in-body image stabilization, 4K video, phase detect autofocus, 11fps burst shooting and tilting touchscreen, the Sony A6500 is like a Swiss Army knife.
