The Sony A7II & 28-70mm kit is currently on massive discount at B&H. They’ve dropped the price from the A7II kit’s regular $1,598 down to a mere $998. That’s almost a 40% discount. But it’s not just the camer and lens. The kit also comes with a 32GB 90MB/sec SanDisk Extreme memory card, a spare battery and an external charger.

Since the release of the Sony A7III, it’s easy to imagine that Sony A7II sales have dipped somewhat. And I guess sometimes you just need to free up space in the warehouse, especially when there’s a whole new flurry of recently released cameras like the Nikon Z6 & Z7, Canon EOS R, Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K coming in, plus whatever the Panasonic, Leica & Sigma alliance will produce in a few months.

But the Sony A7II is still a pretty kickass camera. And when you consider the kind of money that even 10-year-old used full-frame DSLRs like the Nikon D700 and Canon 5D Mark II are still fetching, this is an absolute steal of a price for a brand new full-frame mirrorless with a 28-70mm lens.

Again, the Sony A7II & 28-70mm kit regular $1,598 price is currently down to only $998. B&H hasn’t told us when this sale will expire yet. So, it may just be a “while stocks last” thing. If that’s the case then you definitely won’t want to wait. They won’t last long at this price.
