Sony RX100 VA edition with Extras (SquareTrade, 32GB, Watson) for $909

Sony was doing the “New Editions” thing before Huawei (out of mordant need) made it cool with their Google Play “New Edition” smartphones. So back to Sony, their new RX100 VA edition (buffer size boost and other fixes and improvements) goes for $848~ in new condition at authorized dealers, but if you want a nice bundle with extras, for a limited time, B&H Photo is offering this VA bundle for $909. So that extra $61 gets you:

+ extra Watson-brand battery
+ 32GB Sandisk Extreme PRO SD card
+ 2-year Square Trade Spills-n-Drops warranty

On their own, the three items go for $20 + $13 + $64, so basically if you want the Square Trade warranty, you are paying less with the bundle and get the card and battery as a bonus…

PS: speaking of the RX100 cameras, they have amazing staying power for a digital camera, even defeating Leica! Despite all the newer RX100-series models, even the first generation continues to be available as a current product ($399 new, $279 used, at B&H)…
