    Many of you have probably seen the current $300 off trade in promotion at various retailers.

    B&H has one here: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/buy/Sony_A7/Ntt/Sony+A7/N/0

    My Adorama contact just emailed me to let me know that not only will they discount by $300 for any camera trade in, but they will also give you $50 store credit on top of that plus credit for whatever their used department assesses your camera to be worth plus the 4% reward.

    Here's the full text of the email I got so there is no mistake:

    Seems like a great deal.

    Per SAR, Adorama is running the same $300 deal w/ 4% back + $50 gift card. Also Popflash sold 2 A7R's for $1437 on ebay. The SAR comments say that Sony employees get 50% discount, so these might come from them... Good time to buy A7(R)...

    Oh, I don't know. I've gotten plenty of pleasure from this camera over the past three months. ;)

    It's a little late but still works:

    Item must be added to cart to reflect lower price.
    If you don't see the special price, you may need to login and use code 15111560925873 at checkout.

    Maybe that's over. I logged in and tried, but don't see anywhere to enter the code. Doesn't work as a "gift card".

    It is still working, try the new links in the post below:
    http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1281471/3#12219987

    When I tried it, the price was full msrp but it was lowered when you add to your cart (eg you don't need the code). Fred Miranda posted that he bought his second copy last night so it is still valid...

    The link works for me w/ Microsoft IE, eg it shows discounted price when I click to view my cart, but I never try to check it out. Some people posted there that they had problems checking it out and used paypal instead.

    No regrets this time, but next time, I think I will wait the extra 6 months. :cool:

    I'm a little curious as to how good some of these deals actually are. $300 for some old junker I was about to donate to the thrift store - that would be good. Way below the average eBay price for my old NEX-7 - maybe not so special. (But I'm not sure what that would actually amount to - haven't bothered to submit the info.)

    The $300 off for a trade is real. I called Adorama and they will give you the trade in value up front and you don't actually have to send them anything. I get close to buying but not sure I can justify the cost right now.

    Right. No point in trading anything real. I think my best bet for my nex-6 is eBay, but I think I'll keep it as a second. Have a fair amount of APS-C lenses.
