Sony a7 with 28-70 OSS and Rode PRO R Mic for $1000

We continue our Full Frame price-checking with the entry-point into the Sony 35mm FF a-series. The a7 body only dropped to $800 with the early February Sony instant savings wave, while the “take pictures with” kit with the 28-70mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS dropped to $1000.

Fast forward to now, and the a7 with 28-70mm is getting a pretty useful freebie from Adorama, for the same price of $1000 they also include the new condition Rode Microphones VideoMic Pro R Cardioid Condenser Microphone with Rycote Lyre Shock Mount.

The mic on its own goes for $230, eg B&H Photo and Amazon itself, so that’s a pretty good value!

Panasonic GH4 Body with RODE VideoMic for $998

If of all the M43rds cameras out there it is the Panasonic GH4 body only the one you want, it is currently bundled with a FREE Rode VideoMic with Rycote Lyre Suspension System for the same authorized Panasonic USA dealer price of $998 with free expedited shipping at B&H Photo until Saturday at 11:59pm ET. Note however that B&H does not accept orders Friday PM until Saturday PM, so if you are planning a purchase make sure you factor that in your planning!

You can optionally triple the original warranty of the GH4 by filing with Panasonic. Another benefit of buying from an authorized dealer.

Speaking of the GH-series, as we mentioned earlier today, B&H is planning a live free-streaming panel on the Panasonic GH5S on Wednesday 1/31/18 at 1pm ET!
