Sony’s “Step Up to Sony” summer sale offers up to $1,000 instant rebate savings
We’re always looking out for good deals at DIYP, as I imagine most of you reading this are, too. Well, Sony’s announced its “Step Up To Sony” sales event, with some pretty heavy discounts of up to $1,000 on their most popular bodies, including the Sony A7II, A7RII, A7RIII and A9.
If you’ve been thinking about grabbing a Sony, these discounts run until June 22nd, so you have a little time. But those next three weeks will pass quickly. So, don’t wait too long!
The Sony A9 is Sony’s flagship full frame mirrorless camera aimed primarily at sports and wildlife photographers. But with fantastic video capabilities, top notch autofocus and decent low light performance, it’s fantastic for many other photographic tasks, too.
Popular amongst landscape and portrait photographers, the Sony A7RIII offers a massive 42-megapixel resolution, with 4K UHD video, and up to 10 frames per second continuous shooting.
The previous generation Sony A7RII is also included in the sale. It doesn’t have quite the dynamic range or ISO performance of the newer A7RIII, but it also has a substantially lower price tag.
The Sony A7II is the very popular predecessor to Sony’s current model entry level A7III (no discounts on that one, sorry). At this price, it’s the cheapest full-frame mirrorless camera & lens kit on the market right now.
If you want to save yourself another $100, you can get the body on its own for only $898. You’d be hard pushed to find a better deal than this anywhere on a brand new full-frame mirrorless camera right now.
The sale runs until June 22nd, so you’ve got a little over three weeks to make your mind up. If you’ve been thinking about picking up a Sony or two, now would be the time to buy.
