94.50? Do you mean 945.0?

Here's the entertaining read:
https://slickdeals.net/f/13219096-prime-members-sony-alpha-a6000-mirrorless-digital-camera-94-50-free-shipping?v=1

Apparently the glitch affected a ton of different cameras (all were listed for $94.50).

What adds salt to the wound is that I saw that thread when it was brand new but didn't bother to check because I thought it was just for a regular point and shoot camera. Wasn't until I saw it keep getting bumped that I thought.. "Wait a minute", but prices had been fixed by then..

it affected lenses by themselves also, smart people were grabbing high $ lenses and skipping the camera listings entirely since they were being backordered/oos (the lenses were what was causing the glitch)

I wish they had the R version of this camera for about the same price. My otus lens would be very happy. Then again, I probably don't want either body because they can't use magic lantern, which I rely on.

That's what people didn't get. The price wasn't on cameras. It was on lenses. It just that the camera got thrown in for free if you bought it with a lens. So anything with a lens was $94.50. Including lenses(obvious) and telescopes, no camera needed.

No. I mean $94.50. Yes you had to put up with getting a $1000 lens with that, but you could always just throw that away if it bothers you. Wink

FYI 5DS is a mega pixel monster, but the sensor is the same size as the 5D3, to the photosites (effectively pixels), are smaller so there is significantly more noise at higher ISO settings.

If you're shooting studio, landscapes or anywhere you can control or choose brightly lit situations, the 5DS is an awesome camera. If you might be working in low light like wedding photography the 5D3 is a better choice.

I am still in love with my 5D3.

I hope you didn't get from my post it's a bad camera, it isn't it's great. But as a wedding photog, it's not the right choice for me. Just letting people know, it does have a noise issue.
