Sony A6500 With World's Fastest AF Speed Announced:
Sony has announced the a6500, the latest in the line of mirrorless cameras. Sony has also announced the RX100 V compact camera

The camera shares the same unrivalled 4D focus and can lock onto a subject in as little as 0.05 seconds. Sony say this is the world's fastest AF acquisition time. 

The a6500 shares 425 phase detection AF points like its predecessor, the a6300. The new model can shoot images at up to 11 frames per second with continuous autofocus and exposure tracking and up to 8 frames per second in a live-view shooting mode that makes it easy to track fast moving subjects, as it combines all of the benefits of an electronic viewfinder with the immediacy of an optical viewfinder. 

The camera can shoot at these high speeds for up to 307 frames thanks to its expanded buffer, which, along with the fast response speeds described above, are all achieved with the support of a new front-end LSI chip that has been added to the camera. This new front-end LSI also serves to enhance both still and video image quality.

Sony A6500 With World's Fastest AF Speed Announced: Additionally, the new α6500 features Sony’s acclaimed in-camera 5-axis optical image stabilisation, making it the first Sony APS-C sensor camera to offer all of the benefits of advanced in-body stabilisation, which include a shutter speed advantage of approximately 5 steps. It also offers touchscreen AF capabilities for focus point selection and adjustment.

The camera also features a new touch screen focusing, allowing you to lock focus on a subject by touching the screen. The LCD screen can also be used as a touch pad. Just drag a finger across the screen to shift the focus point from one area to another. 

The camera has an APS-C sized 24.2 megapixel Exmor CMOS sensor that has an impressive sensitivity range of ISO 100-51200. 

The a6500 will be available for 1700 Euros body only or 2800 Euros with a SEL1670Z lens.
