    In the physical stores, Best Buy is clearing out the Sony 20mm e-mount for $159. You can get this even if your store is out of stock. Ask them to order it for you in the store and the price will still be $159 instead of the online price of $350. If you can find an open box the price will be around $107. Best Buy also offers 3x rewards points on this so that's almost $10 in rewards. The SKU is 7960119. Also, the 16mm is $149.

    My closest BB is saying that they are out of stock and regardless would not be offering the sale price. They can order the lens, but at full price. Another store has one in stock at $159. They won't hold the lens, which I understand, but they also say they cannot order more at the sale price.

    Not sure if the stores are allowed to operate independently with regard to this sort of stuff, or if this is just an example of BB being f'ed up. Either way I'mn not driving to the store and then dealing with a bunch of hassle to get a bargain lens. Just not worth it.

    It's a matter of education, not policy. Many stores don't know how this works. Go into a store and have them order it. Yes, the price will show up as $350 all the way until they do the final total. Then it should drop to $160. If it doesn't, don't buy it. You've committed to nothing. Make sure they do a real instore order and not a web order for you. It's a different system. There's nothing for them to consider or allow if they do it correctly. The system will give you the $160 instore price.

    Yes, it is still $160. I just ordered both the 20 mm and 16 mm just like 30 minutes ago. Did it all over the phone. Both will be delivered for free to my house. :)

    I did this 2 nights ago. The blue shirt was not sure it would ship because he didn't see any available stock, but sure enough, I've got 2 tracking numbers showing them en route, each lens shipping from 2 different parts of the country.

    AFAIK...it's been over.
    The SEL20F28 is back to the regular price $349.99, but doesn't seem to be in stock at the stores.

    You'll need to call your local store to find out.
