$200 off retail price with trade in is not a deal at all.

Looks like its $200 + the $500 trade in value.

This might be a good place to ask, I have a Sony a500, hasn't turned on for at least two years now and no professional place has been able to do anything about it. Any idea what I can do with it tradewise or just chuck it?

Sell on eBay. Sometimes you can sell broken electronics for a few bucks. People use them for refurbished parts.

Last year's deals were better IMO and they had trade in bonuses on lenses. If you're in the market for an A7R3 or A9 it seems decent, otherwise just meh.

Think carefully if you're thinking of switching to Sony. Some advantages, some disadvantages, most notably giant expensive lenses, especially if you want f/1.4 or better. Great cameras, just know what you're getting into beforehand systemwise.

Canonist here Wink played w/Sony 100% second the motion Smilie and Sony is nice and much lighter and in the way saved my behind laugh out loud but I would be hard pressed to make it my main rig Smilie

So, are you recommending Sony or Canon? Which would you say is better?

If you are starting fresh Sony has its advantages on sensor capabilities and size. If you are invested in canon then it's probably not yet the right time to switch.

as I mentioned - am a canon user ! but if I had to start again ? would probably consider Sony Wave stellar results @ ~ half the weight and size - believe me after 12 hour contract (which can turn into 14-16) sometimes I use my other hand to bring the camera up ! Sony looks so much more appealing ! Wave results are impressive ! Peace

You can use Canon lenses on a Sony E mount. You just need to buy an adapter. So there really isn't a barrier there. Buy a Metabones adapter and ta-da! Best ISO you can get at that level. It is un fuxking believale.

I don't know your level of photography knowledge/skill, but the primary decision you are making when you are weighing Sony versus Canon or Nikon is whether you want to go with a mirrorless camera (Sony) or a DSLR. I won't get into the differences here because Google can help you there, but I will say that if you didn't know there is a difference, you would be spending a lot more money than you probably should if you purchase any of the cameras that are included in OP's post. IMO, you're much better off with something like the Sony a6000 (if you go the mirrorless route), which is a great camera that is far less expensive than the ones listed due to its crop sensor. If you like it and stay with photography long enough, you can consider whatever is the latest and greatest at the higher end then. I would suggest the same if you decide to try out a Canon/Nikon dslr—you don't need all the bells and whistles right off the bat. You're better off learning the craft without the bells and whistles and perhaps investing in some nicer lenses and upgrading your camera itself once you are more experienced.
