    Hi,
    I'm about to get me a A7 (upgrading from a Nikon D3200). I found a guy selling his gear. The "package" includes: A7 body, Zeiss FE 35-2,8 OSS, Sony FE 24-70-4,0 ZA, Sony LA-EA4 adapter, Tamron AF SP 90-2,8 Di USD, Tamron 70-300/4-5,6 Di USD.

    He wants 3470$ for it all. Would you guy buy this? Or should I find another?

    Best regards

    I know nothing about the Tamron lenses. But unless all of the package appeals to you, the price seems too high to me.

    Yeah, those tamrons are not that needed. How much would be a fair price for the body and the zeiss lenses? Sorry If I'm annoying, but not in to the market of Sonys yet.

    Ok, a new A7 body costs $1500, the Zeiss 35 2.8 costs $800, the 24-70 $1200 and the adapter $350 = $3850
    The SP-90 I think its about $800 and the 70-300 $400 = $1200
    Total = $5050

    A used A7 body would be $1000.

    IF you're not interested in the Tamron's, then I think the price is high and you should negotiate it - maybe make him an offer without the Tamron's? :)

    And those prices Nick listed are for new equipment A quick search on ebay will give you a pretty good idea what used gear is selling for now.

    I know David, that's why I wrote "new" and gave an example of a used A7 body only ;)

    Thank both of you! Yeah I will try to negotiate the price a bit. I´m really tempted getting this camera, new or used. Seems like a great tool.

    i agree a tad too high -to get a good idea of used prices check fredmiranda.com
    when selling a bundle imo you always have to give good discount to sell as few buyers want all the gear & only on-sell anyway

    Thanks, yeah I will try to lower the price. Here in Sweden you can get an A7, new, for around 1300$ atm with cashback from Sony (It's usually around 1675 $).

    Yeah, saw that one yesterday!!! That's a great price - you guys in the US are so lucky as far as pricings goes - here in Europe prices are not the same :(
