Adorama is bundling a free Audio Technica mic with the purchase of one of these 17 cameras. Fourteen of them are Canon DSLRs and Sony full frame mirrorless cameras, along with two Fuji X100T kits and the Panasonic GH4 body only.

Pre-order Sony a7s II for $3000 starting Sept 17

I don’t know if they are trying to mirror Apple’s way of new product releases, but Sony continues with the two phase product announcement and pre-orders. Announced on Friday was the new Sony a7S II mirrorless full framer. Pre-orders for the camera will begin to be accepted on September 17 in 2015 at various authorized Sony dealers including Adorama and B&H Photo. At least Sony didn’t go the OnePlus route of waiting lists and such :)

This too has been added to the New Cameras of 2015 tracking page.

Of video interest, you can place pre-orders right now, with a mid-November 2015 release estimate, for the new Sony PXW-FS5 Super35 video camera which goes for $5600 as body only and $6100 bundled with the 28-135mm lens.

Sony Camera Instant Savings (E-mount, A-mount)

Sony has another round of instant savings promotions, combined with free accessories included by Adorama, and up to 4% promotional rewards, plus free NewLeaf spills/drops warranties for some models. You can find all the eligible cameras nicely organized at the Adorama website.

Check each individual camera’s product page to see what are the available offers. There are two places to check. Let’s use the Sony a6000 body only as our example. It currently goes for $450 and right above the price, you can see that it also comes bundled with a free 64GB Lexar Professional SDXC memory card.

But the offers don’t end there. Look for the hard to find “Ways to Save” section and open that, which will reveal the “Save up to $300.00 with bundle” option. Click on that, and it will take you to the a6000 bundles page. Check the left side there for the various promotions. In this case, you can optionally add the 55-210 for +$150, or add a 1yr New Leaf Spills/Drops warranty for FREE or get various hardware or software at a combined purchase discount.

Annotated screenshots of what to look for below, using the a6000 body only kit as our guinea pig (after the jump):

Their description is as follows: “Returned, used as display model in store, or opened due to packaging damage but remains in like-new condition.” You can locate open-box options on the top line, between the product name and price box (annotated screesnot crop below):


The new condition price at authorized dealers is $450. Some retailers offer extra free accessories with it at $450, making the decision more difficult.

At authorized Sony USA dealers this goes for $2500 such as Adorama (free Shure or Audio Technica mic) or B&H Photo (2% rewards = $50) or Amazonia.
