Well, it seems that we now have a solid day for the announcement of the Sony A7S III mirrorless camera. A listing has popped up on the B&H website, with no information, except for an event teaser image shown above and a notification of when pre-orders will begin.
The teaser image shows the A7S III logo with the slogan “Imagination in Motion”, reinforcing that this will be a more video-centric camera, like its predecessors. The date and time listed is July 28th, 2020 at 10am Eastern. This matches up with the date and time shown in the listing when pre-orders will become available.

Released back in 2016, the Canon 5D Mark IV has proven over and over to be an extremely capable and popular DSLR for photographers. Even today I see people every day debating back and forth on whether to get one or just go with a new-0ld-stock 5D Mark III to save a little money. Well, this sale will help settle that internal debate for you.
B&H is currently running a sale from now until Christmas Eve on the 5D Mark IV and EOS R with some massive discounts. Body only with the accessories kit is just under $2,000 while the kit including the 24-105mm f/4 lens sees a huge $1,300 reduction.
It looks like B&H has some substantial discounts on the Sony A6500 and its various kit combos today for “Green Monday”, with most reductions sitting around $400 and the highest being a whopping $600. The sale includes body-only and kits including various combos of 16-50mm, 16-70mm, 18-105mm, 18-135mm, and/or 55-210mm lenses.
While the world is looking for bargains today, we thought we’d look at the opposite end of the spectrum, the most expensive gear we could find on the B&H website this Black Friday. Our plan was to produce a setup that, if you won the lottery, you might actually consider buying. Gear that should work well together, and costs a ludicrous amount of money.
Can we actually spend $1,000,000 on photography gear? On a kit that could actually serve a useful purpose? I mean, sure, we could spend $233K on just one lens and adapt it to a Sony, but where’s the fun in that? Ok, scratch that, it does sound kinda fun, but it’s not exactly practical, is it? And that’s what we’re trying to look at here.
B&H recently made headlines after being accused by the New York Attorney General’s office of being short on sales tax by at least seven million dollars over the past 13 years. They allege that B&H intentionally miscalculated sales tax in order to make their prices look more attractive to customers to outsell the competition.
A statement has now been issued by B&H spokesperson, Jeff Gerstel, disputing these claims, stating that their approach is the same way the entire consumer electronics retail industry works, and that the AG just wants to tax New Yorkers on money they haven’t spent.
The Verge reports that the New York Attorney General believes retailer B&H has dodged over $7,000,000 in taxes in a lawsuit filed recently. It’s all to do with the “Instant Rebate” offers, which are common amongst online retailers these days. The suit claims that B&H has “cheated” the NY sales tax and that they “chose profits over principles”. The investigation and lawsuit come as a response to a whistleblower they say approached them in January 2016.
