Doesn't ship until January, but sometimes they beat that, so caution, likely wont be in time for the holidays.

yes, it's good for the price, most people go straight to the a7iii or higher.
lower battery life + slower autofocus are some of the cons for this camera

Seems Sony is content with running these "deals" every 2 months instead of lowering the price of the damned camera. It's ancient and they must be sitting on some new old stock.

In 2018 I paid $1000 for the camera with kit, with $300 gift card. So actually $700.-

Yes, this thing should be $600 max at this point, just like the Canon EOS RP was in the Cyber Monday sale.

Sony tries to make their product hard to find to keep the price up… crappy tactics like Chanel, Gucci, or Hermes bags!!

Guess we made it back to pre pandemic prices. This has great IQ and is very capable. Not the latest or greatest, but if you are on a budget, it does the job.

I paid 1300 USD landed body only back in 2016.

Canon had a really good deal on the RP refurbished body. I got the RP body, RF 50mm, RF 24-105mm, EF adapter, and EF 75-300 for around $1000 (all refurbished). They all looked new, except for coming in different boxes and lacking lens hoods. The bodies are out of stock now, unfortunately.

That is a fantastic kit at a fantastic price. You'll be very happy with it. Covers all your needs for $1,000 in full frame. Just amazing.

In the same sale, I bought an EOS R, the control ring adapter and an RF 50 1.8. The EOS R already arrived. Looks brand new. No signs of prior use whatsoever. It's likely brand new sold as refurb.

I also have a Sony A7R III, which I preordered at full price when it came out. It made sense at the time when camera tech was advancing fast. (The A7R III was quite a leap forward.) No more. Image quality has been essentially the same for the past decade. Now I'll only buy new bodies on closeout sale prices. The EOS R at $899 including a free, $250 battery grip was the right price.

If you can make the stretch, you could get a second hand A7III and the 28-70 from a site like MPB or KEH for a few hundred more. There were significant advances between the A7II and A7III in terms of autofocus, shutter speed, battery life, and a BSI sensor. The A7III is a much more capable camera.
