Yesterday, we reported on Adorama issuing the original Sony a7 for an extremely low price. These weren’t refurbished or used cameras; instead they were brand new and being offered in a bundle package to sell together.
However, this isn’t the case anymore as all of the cameras were put on backorder. On top of this, a couple of people woke up to some very sad news today.
So unfortunately, it looks like you’re not getting your camera. For what it’s worth, the Sony a7 is still available at $998 which is still a great price.
It makes me wonder though: when I used to work at B&H Photo, what we would do is have staff call the customers personally to inform them that they, the store, screwed up. To that end, they needed to raise the price back up to the normal selling point and the customer had the choice to either pay in full or totally cancel the order. It was a job I wouldn’t have envied: but those folks deserve a lot of respect. B&H Photo also is very big on issuing apologies to the public. Excellent customer service aside though, B&H Photo has its own share of issues.
One can only dream I guess.
