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.

No Pre-Orders Yet: new Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 Di III RXD (Sony E Full Frame)

Perhaps as a sign of the times, along with the new 70-210mm f4 Di VC, Tamron has announced the development of a new temptation for mirrorless! It is the brand new Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 Di III RXD for the 35mm full frame Sony E system.

This has been added to the New Lenses of 2018 tracking page…

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)
