Sony SEL135F18GM G Master Premium Telephoto E-Mount Lens from Amazon UK $1564 plus shipping plus tax

The lowest price I have ever seen for this sharpest prime lens in the Sony Full-frame mirrorless lineup with Amazon return policy backup. Amazon US is asking $2098 plus tax. For those who should be aware this is probably not covered under US warranty but the Amazon UK offered the same return policy and manufacture warranty.

Wow that is pretty good! Dunno about the tax situation when you order like this. FYI, here's the current prices around the web:
  • B&H = $2,098
    • $1,678.40 w/ EDU discount
  • Adorama = $2,098

It's a great lens. Its next on my list. I would be concerned about it shipping from abroad right now.

It can be found on Ebay new for about 50 bucks more, after taxes, shipping and 5% back but it ships from the US

Also wanted to add this is the second lens deal I've seen from the UK side, if lockdown starts and sales start falling I'm going to be keeping my eyes open for US deals.

This is a good price. I paid much more for this in October even with a tax free sale at a local shop that was cheaper than B&H at the time.

Not something I would be bragging about. $2500 a7r4 was cheaper than the r3 it overtook and it's like a free lens upgrade with the increased res.

Loving the ecosystem rn

What's funny tho, is that mastering the Sony menu system requires a degree and 100+ IQ lol.
