That’s an obscene amount of money for this!

Thought this was the A7s II for a sec. Still a fairly good price though.

Cheaper on amazon without cash back

Great camera, but you can have it for a lot less than that. eg jessops jessops.com/p/s…BwE
and I am sure they are not the chepest

ohh. it is Zeiss lens - you should maybe add it to the title

Does the cashback work if buying from Amazon ?

Don't confuse the 24-70mm Zeiss lense with the inferior 28-70mm lense. This is still a good price.

Sony only have two Fe 24-70mm Lenses in their line up, apart from the Zeiss here, the other is the G lens at £1899

I don’t need to as this has been cheaper than this so many times! I bought the camera for £1020 three years ago in the uk at a uk dealer. Just this past week the camera has been under £1000.

And that lens has been under £700 many times too

Where has it been sold under £1k with a lens ? Or do you mean without a lens ?

I’d argue the a7rii deal for £1999 was a much better deal and can get a decent lens when you can afford it

Also the a7iii is imminent

For the record I own an a7ii so not against it at all

Without but then at least you’re free to get either this lens (which was under £700) or something alternative like the 55mm Zeiss f1.8 which is the best lens of all time

yes its a different lens than most posts
current lens price retail is £770 after cashback
current body only price for camera is £950 after cashback so a small saving on current prices

Interesting. Off course the R lines will always be a better deal for people who need it or can afford it. But for £300 less for quite a decent full frame body and lens is a bargain me thinks. Also a great way to move into full frame mirrorless systems which give you so much more for your money than the likes of Canon and Nikon.


Also the lens is Vario-Tessar T* FE 24-70mm F4 ZA OSS rather than the inferior FE 28-70mm F3.5-5.6 OSS.

I have pre-ordered a7r III but would probably buy this as a second body when I can afford it.

Have you looked at the lens you get with this? They are completely different lenses. The one you get with this is this one - sony.co.uk/ele…70z

It's not a bad price once you get the refund back.
The 24-70 Zeiss lens is known for not being very good, if you want edge to edge sharpness.

I've had the 24-70 GM lens (not "lense" FFS) and mine was garage.
If you want quality, buy primes.

Exactly! Not getting a much superior lens to the kit as is claimed above. I had the Zeiss f4 and returned it as wasn’t happy with the quality for the price. The kit lens however I have retained as much better for the money. The Zeiss colours were there but sharpened wasn’t acceptable. Many forums of Sony users are voicing their hope they remakes this Zeiss lens as many feel it’s just not good enough but a necessary lens in the lineup.

I’d argue you may as well go for the a7 mk1 then if it’s about money as that’s a much bigger saving and will still have the stabilisation with most lenses. That was £619 with kit lens the other day. That’s a proper bargain!

Both cameras drop to the lowest price ever last weekend, anybody interested should have made his move. I ordered the mki+kit lens for £619 initially, but park cameras drop the price of the mkii body at £760(after cashback) for a day, so I got that one instead. If you're not on tight budget, Imo the additional features worth the extra quid.

If I were to buy the camera body only, and a different lens. Could I claim cashback for both ?

Only if the lens and body are on the list of Sony body/lens kit combos otherwise you get the cash-back per item if applicable.

I am surprised you didnt share that deal from Park cameras. I am sure that would have been a toasty deal for many as this deal is getting snowy cold 😯

Didn't last long, I was trying to make my mind up during the weekend which to choose(I had already received the mki), Mon afternoon I checked one more time the camera price buster site and saw that price. On Park Camera site, it was atm the higher price, so I thought it was a misprice. Just before go to bed I check one last time and it was the lower one, so I ordered it straight away.

Probably that day the price fluctuated couple of times and didn't notice it but I got lucky in the end . Otherwise I would have kept the mki from amazon.

Yep I saw that and the a7ii body and the 24-240 lens is on too. Any thoughts on that lens? Good all rounder it seems. Maybe not as sharp as the Zeiss 24-70 but still decent enough for the same price !
