Imported Sony a7S body for $1800

Back to the eBay Deals where GetItDigital (99.7%) is offering the new condition imported (grey market) Sony a7S body only for $1800 with free shipping, with the usual limit of five per customer. The main picture has the a7 box, while the rest of the listing talks about the a7s. That and the unusual look of the box in the listings perhaps causing people to not buy it. It comes with a one year warranty from the seller GetItDigital, not from Sony USA.

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.
