I’m cross-posting this from Sony Mirrorless Pro because it’s the best deal I’ve seen from Sony and I get asked frequently about upgrading.
The trade-in and trade-up summertime bonus deals run now through September 30, 2017, with up to $500 bonus offer on top of the trade-in value of a working DSLR or mirrorless camera. The bonus is combined with instant rebates of up to $200 on the same eligible products.
Sony is also offering limited time 24-month interest-free financing at participating retailers on select Sony imaging products. Find the deal at a Sony retailer and read the details at Alpha Universe.
The instant rebates apply to the a7 mark IIs (r, s, and regular a7). So if you traded in a 5D and bought the a7R II ($2898.00 on Amazon), it would cost $899.00, about the cost of a decent set of training wheels.
And, remember, you can connect your glass with an adapter like the Sigma MC-11.
