Yes, so happy i held off from first wave of sale. Secured a price i couldn't say no to.
Do a7iii not come with a sony voucher anymore?
There should still be a $50 voucher in the box.
Mine was completely missing.. Emptied the box and everything
Can't redeem it for nuggets Josh, just so you know
Haha i wanted to use it towards the battery grip lmao
It's $550 at Sony but only $400 at Ryda so I don't think you're losing out on much
Might put it towards 70-200 f4 or the macro..
Grip i might grab a mieke one. Had one for my d600 nikon and it was great. Played with the 55 and a7iii today. Godddd what a killer. And the a7iii body. The grip is so deliciously chunky! The AF, the rx100vi AF is fantastic but this..wow!!! I am in love.
Sony has confirmed all newer stock shipped does not come with voucher anymore.
never used the voucher anyway myself, stuff from Sony direct is usually that overpriced
Had the meike grips and did the job
I struggled to find anything to actually use mine on. Ended up just getting a spare battery and charger for my RX100 (which barely even gets used any more).
Yeah super handy for spare batteries but not super useful for many of the other accessories if you get good sales.
Still better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick
Now eyeing the godox v860iis. Oh boy
Did anybody buy the A7RIII and take advantage of the $500 cashback?
Yep, got my EFTPOS card a few days of submitting it. Used the $500 to order a 16-35 GM
Has been over 6 weeks since I jumped through the hoops on the website, and I just realise I haven't gotten a confirmation email. :/
Yep, I did it in early December and got my gift card around Christmas, maybe ~2-3 weeks. Used the gift card to pay for some of my honeymoon flights
FYI, Firmware V3.0 for A7 III and A7R III is live on Sony China's website, will probably show up on Sony Australia soon...
Now live on Sony Australia's website too.
