Hello I'm intending to buy a Sony camera and would like to know if I can get a cheaper price or some sort of discount from Sony centre shops?

Because if buying lens I know can get some discount but how about cameras?

Appreciate everyone's input. Thanks!

One of the Sony Centre outlets are offering discounts on older Sony Alpha 7 models (if that is what you are looking)
- ILCE-7M2K @ $1,659
- ILCE-7M2 @$1,319
- ILCE -7RM2 @ $1,959

The items are brand new and not display sets and the freebies that they are offering is mainly the complimentary Sony Workshop.

That was why I was contemplating whether to buy the older series knowing that there is a danger that it will be obsolete

would you consider non-Sony camera shops. They will give you some discounts. In 2019, I was offered 12% off the RRP.

What's a BF sales?

You mean incl. of delivery and gst still cheaper?

How about warranty for such purchases?

Black Friday . Get a quote from the local Sony store and then keep checking online .Sometimes Amazon.com and another store called Adorama also have deals.

Yes, inclusive of GST and delivery.

I think that Sony doesnt have an international warranty in place.That being said , I've never had electronics fail on me within warranty :) , so I'm ok with such purchases. That website is very well known and not fly by night.

not afraid no warranty? bhphoto will ship international?

I haven't had an electronic item fail on me inside warranty ever so maybe I'm biased.I've bought a few things from bhphotovideo.com including a camera body and lens.Also bought a Macbook pro shipped via a freight forwarder ( comgateway ) as they don't ship Apple products directly.Most other products can be direct shipped.Just keep an eye on prices during the US holidays for a good deal.

As an example i attach an order from 2015 when that Sony mirrorless cam body was selling for a ridiculous price in Singapore , forget about the Zeiss Touit lens price lol

The below were bought during a Dec sale when prices really dipped.




I have also bought lenses from a Japanese seller on Amazon.com and used Russian lenses on eBay.

Just hobby sized buying not a pro :)

and everything is still working haha
