In-Stock Oddities: USED New Sony a7r III body for $3200 (updated)

UPDATE 12/12/17 at 10:20am ET
Stranger in a stranger land. Now the same seller has a USED listing through Amazon which says it is brand new. Here’s a screenshot…

This is bizarre, I’d say wait for the more well-known retailers to have it in-stock 🙂

ORIGINAL POST
I just updated the Stock Status Tracker and there are some promising news, the camera is shown as in-stock for its starting price of $3200 by seller “Cardinal Photo” through Amazon. This ships directly from Cardinal Photo, and it is not eligible for Prime shipping.

The shipping estimates will vary depending on how near/far you are to the shipping routes as they intersect with Cardinal’s location.

(ENDED) Sony a7r III gets a December 7 estimate

As of a 12/5/17 at 8:33pm ET, the estimate has moved from December 7 to December 18. This is likely because more pre-orders came in to eat up the upcoming inventory or something changed infrastructure-wise (eg delays at the ports and such).

For the big picture, check the Stock Status Tracker

The Sony a7r III body only now has a December 7 estimate (as of the time of writing) at B&H Photo. Keep in mind, estimates can change over time…

Sony a7r III not out yet

If you missed it earlier today, you can rewatch it at any time, the previously mentioned 1-hour 5-person panel by B&H Photo on the Sony a7r III camera.

There was a November 30 in-stock estimated date mentioned a couple of weeks ago, before the Black-Cyber Friday-Monday madness began.

The camera itself, as of the time of writing, is not in-stock. At Amazon by Amazon itself it is in the ubiquitous “temporarily out of stock” status. At Adorama it is in pre-order status and so is at B&H Photo. It is currently ranked the #1 new release in Mirrorless Cameras, but before you schedule a victory parade, keep in mind that Amazon’s rankings are only as good as their product categorization and classification :

Watch (FREE): Sony a7r III B&H Photo Discussion

Ooops, I didn’t post this early enough when it went live, but you can watch it at any time! It is the B&H Photo Sony a7r III Video Stream. The five person panel discussion starts around the 10 minute mark. You can also find it YouTube-embedded below:

Sony a7 body with extras for $798

35mm Full frame for $800! A new low as far as I can recall for a new condition camera from an authorized USA dealer! It’s the good old Sony a7 body only, down to $798 with free shipping at Adorama (with free accessories) and at B&H Photo (two free accessories) and at Amazon itself.

Full frame parties 🙂 This went for $1000 a couple of weeks ago when I posted the 35mm Full Frame Camera Price Charts.

Sony a7R II Body with One Serious Freebie (choices LR6, 4TB HDD, Creative Cloud, Tascam Mic) for $2398

The Sony a7r II was going for $2900 when I posted the Mirrorless Price Charts two weeks ago, but the combination of the impending release of the a7r III and the various Instant Savings offers have dropped its price down to $2400 and that’s not all, you also get free items with purchase!

At B&H Photo, you have a choice of serious freebies: either a 4TB WD MyPassport External HDD or a free 1-Year Photographer Creative Cloud subscription.

At Adorama you have a choice of freebies as well, either Lightroom 6 software or Tascam DR-10S Mic or the customary bundle of photo accessories.

Amazon is stingy on the freebies (none) but if you pay for it with a Prime VISA you will get 5% as a statement credit (that’s $120).

Reminder: Sony a7r III expected November 30 for $3200

Reminder, lost in the Black Friday madness: the new deputy of the Sony E-system, coming in at $3200 [see Mirrorless Price Charts], the Sony a7r III is scheduled to be released on Thursday November 30 in 2017 with pre-orders accepted at Amazon by Amazon actual and Adorama and B&H Photo.

I will integrate it in the Stock Status Tracker after Cyber Monday madness cools off.

If you are not mesmerized by the a7r III or its starting price, there are sales on the a7S II, for $2500 you can get it with the Rokinon 35/2.8 FE or for $2400 you can get the a7S II body only.

Sony a6500 with 16-50mm and Sigma 30/1.4 DC DN for $1469

The Sony a6500 dropped to $1200 body only or $1300 with the 16-50mm as part of this week’s Instant Savings madness.

BUT IF you want to buy the Sony a6500 with 16-50mm kit and a prime lens too, more specifically the Sigma 30mm F1.4 DC DN (E-mount of course), you get them together as a bundle for $1469 at BuyDIG.com. Just add to cart and proceed to checkout. No coupons, no rebates.

The Sigma 30mm F1.4 DC DN lens on its own goes for $339 with freebies at Adorama or with 4% rewards at B&H Photo.

So with the BuyDIG bundle, you are adding the 30/1.4 lens for $170 more, half off its on-its-own price.

Sony a7S II body with Rokinon 35mm f2.8 FE for $2500

The Sony a7S II body only is now down to $2400 BUT if you also want to buy a prime lens, more specifically the Rokinon 35mm f2.8 FE (IO35AF-E) autofocus lens, you can get them together as a bundle for $2500 with free shipping at BuyDIG.com. No coupon needed, just add to cart and checkout.

Sony a7S II Body down to $2400 (with freebies)

The Sony a7S II body only went for $2700 a couple of weeks when I posted the Mirrorless Price Charts. This week’s Instant Savings Madness dropped the price down to $2400 at authorized dealers with the option of various freebies:

+ At Adorama (keep paging down to see them all) you get either a free Lightroom 6 OR free Tascam Shotgun Mic OR the usual free accessories

+ At B&H Photo you can get a 4TB WD External HDD or a Rode Video Mic (the other free option on the listing)

+ At Amazon various 3rd-party sellers are offering their own bundles

Sony a6500 body only drops to $1200 [corrected]

CORRECTION 11/20/17 the blog post title originally said $1100 instead of $1200. Those sneaky $1199 prices still trick me 🙁

The Sony a6500 body went for $1500 a couple of weeks ago when I posted the Mirrorless Price Charts but as of today’s massive Instant Savings madness, it is now down to $1200 with free shipping at authorized dealers as follows:

+ At Amazon where you can also see all the instant savings bundles with participating lenses; 5% cashback with Prime VISA or Prime Store card

+ At Adorama with free Corel software, 16GB SD, 24/7 TC holster, etc

+ At B&H Photo with a 64GB Sandisk SDXC card and shoulder bag

On the same listings shown above at the above retailers you will find the “a6500 with 16-50mm” kit going for $1300, and the two lens kit (16-50, 55-210) going for $1450, and the “with 18-105” for $1750, and the “with 16-70” for $2100.

Sony RX100 Mark V with $50 Gift Card and Extras for $950

CORRECTION: the blog-post title said Mark IV instead of Mark V! This post is for the Mark V! All apologies for the confusion!

The Sony RX100 Mark V is the current “leader” of the RX 100 series and it was going for $1000 a couple of weeks ago when I posted the Fixed Lens Cameras Price Charts.

Fast forward to today, and its price dropped to $950 and it is getting a $50 house gift card along with free accessories as follows:

+ At B&H Photo you get a $50 B&H e-gift card, a 32GB Sandisk Extreme SD, and a case

+ At Adorama you get a $50 gift certificate (it is #6 in the list of freebies in the linked page), along with a 32GB Lexar SD, Corel software, Lowepro pouch, and a cleaning kit

+ At Amazon [CORRECTED LINK] you get a $50 physical Amazon gift card in a classically styled black gift card box
+ this happens rarely at Amazon, but if the gift card arrives before the camera ships, you can use the value of the gift card towards the price of the camera. Billing Inception 🙂

Sony RX10 II and III drop $100 since last week

The middle two models of the four Sony RX10 series cameras have dropped $100 since last week when we posted the Fixed Lens Camera Charts last week as follows:

+ RX10 II for $1100 at Adorama (with freebies) and B&H Photo (with freebies) and Amazon

+ RX10 III for $1300 at Adorama (with freebies) and B&H Photo (with freebies) and Amazon

Now shipping: Sony RX0 Action RAWsumer

This is the first time I noticed this is in-stock, I’m not sure when it became in-stock in the first place. It is Sony’s RX0, an elementproof action camera with a 1-inch sensor and RAW support. It is in-stock at its starting price of $700 at Adorama and B&H Photo and Amazon where a 3rd-party seller (K&M Camera Store) is offering a bundle for the same price with various free accessories (64GB SD, case, etc) with the orders fulfilled by Amazon.

PSA: Sony RX1 and RX1R starting to disappear

The Sony RX1 and RX1R 35mm full frame fixed lens cameras are starting to disappear from retailers. Both are gone from Adorama (RX1R and RX1R), while at B&H Photo both cameras are marked as “Special Order” (2-4 weeks) for both the RX1 and the RX1R.

As of the time of writing, both the RX1 and the RX1R remain readily available at Amazon but each camera has a limit of up to three per customer. The price remains at $2400 as you can see at the Fixed Lens Cameras charts of last week.

Of course the used cameras won’t magically disappear. You can get it used for less than half the price, it is available in “USED – Bargain” condition for $1199 at KEH Camera with a 180-day warranty from KEH Camera.

Sony a6300 with 16-50 and 55-210 and Extras for $998

A loaded entry-point bundle in the Sony E-system, the Sony a6300 camera with the 16-50mm and 55-210mm lenses and some free accessories is currently going for $998 with free shipping at a couple of authorized Sony dealers as follows:

At Adorama you get the Corel software bundle (five titles), a Lowepro Format 140 shoulder bag, a 16GB SD card, a memory card wallet, a cleaning kit, a Tiffen 40.5mm UV filter and a Pro-Optic 49mm UV filter (two lenses are included in the bundle, so that’s why you get two different filters). You also earn $40~ in promotional rewards to be spent in future Adorama purchases.

Optionally, when you expand the yellow “Special Offers” section, there is an option to add to this bundle the 1-year Adobe Photographer Creative Cloud subscription for $100 instead of its regular price of $120.

At B&H Photo this offer has a 11/11/17 at 11:59pm ET expiration date. The freebies included are a 64GB Sandisk ExTrEmE SDXC memory card and an extra 3rd-party (Pawa) battery and a Ruggard Onyx 25 shoulder bag.
