My Full Lens Kit For Sony a6500, including Sigma E-Mount lenses

The Sony a6500 is definitely a very capable camera. You can get a lot out of it even with just the kit zoom lens (16-50mm). However, there are some budget lenses out there that will help you a lot in your film and videomaking.

In this video I talk about what lenses I have for my a6500, and what I like (and dislike) about them.

Here are all the lenses and where you can buy them:

Sony E 16-50mm F3.5-5.6 OSS lens on B&H, Adorama (used), eBay, Amazon

Sony E 55-210mm F4.5-6.3 OSS lens on B&H, Adorama (used), eBay, Amazon, Newegg

Sony E 50mm F1.8 lens on B&H, Adorama, Henry’s, eBay, Amazon, Newegg

Sigma 30mm f/1.4 DC lens on B&H, Henry’s, eBay, Amazon

Sigma 16mm f/1.4 DC lens on B&H, Adorama, Henry’s, eBay, Amazon

Here is the backpack I use: B&H

And here are the current deals on the Sony a6500: BH Photo Video, Adorama, Henry’s, eBay, Amazon

  1. Hello,

    The only problem with this camera is the temperature … Full checking because I work at weddings and I need to know that the camera did not stop in the middle of the ceremony.

    Recording in 4k with fictitious battery in 43 minutes, I have a high temperature signal.

    And after that I put the camera in HD at 50p to record and I stopped recording at 1 hour and 45 minutes, I do not have the signal.

    Ambient temperature 20 degrees. I do not know how it will affect to be recording a full sun but I am afraid that exponentially. It can be that at 30 degrees or 35 degrees in summer, it does not last 20 minutes.


  2. I have the a6500 with the 16mm 1.4 lens too! Great lens, wide aperture, doesnt make autofocus sound, sharp image and price is pretty damn good too!

  3. Does this cammera can record more than 29 minutes without stoping?
    Have you used the camlink el gato device for video streamming?

    And last: does it have acceptable buil-in sound?
