    Because I called them up and asked, and the one I bought arrived at 9am this morning. Great company to deal with, super responsive and easy going!

    The local shop claims that Sony expect a delivery to their warehouse on the 18th December, and add a couple of days to that for distribution and your local shop may get one before Christmas.

    *edit*

    Oh, and expect great prices, the A7RIII is being heavily discounted at the moment.

    just pulled the trigger on an A7 III. local stock. with the ebay discount, came out to be $2709. i've got an FE 85mm zeiss batis, is it worth investing into the 35mm 1.4 distagon?

    Only if you can test it first. There are wide variances of quality from copy to copy from all reports.

    A73 and A7R3 had a firmware release today to 2.1 which fixes some issues with writing to memory and also another with a batch of Sandisk SD cards that effected Slot 1 (couldnt be read).
