Here are some camera/lens price updates you may be interested in; the Sony A900 is $2499.99 with instant savings, I think that’s the same low price is was during the December sale. The Sony NEX-3 with 16mm lens is $499.99 until 3/5/11. A couple of days ago I mentioned getting the Sony microphone if you like shooting video with your NEX camera, well, it’s been discounted even more, now at $81.00 (until 2/12/11), down from $93.00 in the past few days, that’s weird. Also, the Sony A33 is being offered at $599.99 body only until 3/5/11. One last item of significance is the Tamron 60mm F/2 macro lens; $389 after mail-in rebate, that’s $100 off the retail price, offer expires 4/30/11. I’m hoping to review that lens in the near future.
Many people are speculating that Sony is trying to reduce inventories of these items in anticipation of new model releases, but that’s total BS, as Sony has claimed nothing new in those categories will be released until this summer at the earliest.
