After 3 yrs and 10 months of saving (and spending!) a fortune, I thought id give something back! first post, so be a little gentle.
I just brought this today for £199 at jessops in-store at the Brighton branch. I couldn’t find it online for the sony, so called Jessop’s HQ and they confirmed this is now the price across all stores. Hope this helps someone else.
Amazon and others are charging at least £150 more!
Now before we all slate the brand, just remember how little this is for a ultra wide angle. sigma and tokina do comparable lenses, but at much inflated prices. This is a good deal for the amateur photographer getting into lenses beyond the standard kit supplied with the original body.
