Pre-orders begin for new Sony a7 III at 11am ET

Get your e-wallets ready if interested in this one! Pre-orders for the new Sony a7 III body only full frame Sony E-system camera will begin at 11am eastern today (Wednesday 2/28/18) at authorized Sony dealers for $2000 body only or $2200 with the 28-70 lens at B&H Photo and Adorama et al.

You can see how it stacks up price-wise to the rest of the cameras using the:
+ 35mm full frame price charts
+ Mirrorless Price Charts
+ these were created before the a7 III was announced (that’s why it’s not in there; but it will be in the next iteration of these)

Pre-orders for new Sony a7 III start Wedn 11am ET

Sony has plenty of 35mm full frame cameras [see 35mm full frame price charts] but that’s not stopping them from revealing a brand new model! The Sony a7 III body only is now an official product and pre-orders of it will begin on Wednesday 2/28/18 at 11am eastern at authorized Sony dealers.

The starting price is $2000 for the body only, and $2200 for the kit with the 28-70mm lens. A listing for the camera is available at B&H Photo and Adorama with the pre-ordering option activating on Wednesday at 11am eastern.

This has been added to the New Cameras of 2018 tracking page and has given mirrorless cameras a 7-1 lead over DSLRs in 2018.

Sony a7r II + Flashpoint Zoom R2 Flash for $2400

With the release of the new Sony a7r III, the a7r II body only dropped in price, currently going for $2400 [see 35mm Full Frame Price Charts], but that’s not all, Adorama is bundling it with a FREE Flashpoint Zoom Li-on R2 TTL On-Camera Flash Speedlight for Sony, together going for the same authorized dealer price of $2400 with free expedited shipping. This too is part of their WPPI specials.

Sony RX10 Mark IV + $100 Gift Card + 64GB Sandisk Extreme + Bag for $1700

And while we are on the topic of big zooms, the new condition Sony RX10 Mark IV is bundled with a $100 B&H gift card, along with a 64GB Sandisk Extreme card and a holster-style bag for the same authorized dealer price of $1700, which is where it was last week when we posted our Fixed Lens Cameras price charts…

For more action, check all the B&H WPPI specials or just their camera specials

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!

Sony a7r II body with One Useful Freebie (Five Options)

The Sony Instant Savings of early February gave us plenty of Sony lens discounts and also Sony camera discounts but that’s not all. Some of the discounted cameras are also getting freebies now.

One such discounted camera was the Sony a7r II which is now down to $2400. It went for $2900 during our November 2017 Price charts. A $500 price drop, part of it of course because of the new $3200 a7r III. Sony has been staircasing the prices of the RX-series (they still haven’t discontinued any of those RAWsumers), so it makes sense they are doing this with their a-series as well.

Okay, too much mumbling, the point of this post is this, the a7r II body only goes for $2400 with free shipping and a variety of freebie options as follows:

+ at B&H Photo with 4TB WD My Passport USB 3.0 Secure Portable Hard Drive

+ at B&H Photo with Adobe Photographer Plan Creative Cloud 12-Month Subscription Kit

+ at Adorama with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 6 (stand alone version; not cloudy edition)

+ at Adorama with Tascam DR-10SG Camera-Mountable Audio Recorder with Shotgun Microphone

+ at Adorama with various free accessories (32GB Extreme PRO, extra battery, etc) along with the new Corel software bundle (four on-topic software titles)
