A little tip for those of you who want an even bigger discount. This will only work if you're a first time user of Google Wallet. Place your order via the BH app or the mobile site and pay with Google Wallet and you can get an additional $70-$95 off.

It's no secret, but it's not common knowledge that Google is offering an additional 6% off your purchase at BH:

Thanks, good to know !
I read the link and thought this might be useful for some folks :

"........
*Note: Google Wallet option will be disabled for purchases over $1,600 (before shipping & taxes) as well as for certain products restricted by Google....."

abhijeeth--excellent point. When I bought mine I tried to find these deals by searching directly on the app and the mobile site--the discounts never showed up, and I couldn't pay via Google Wallet. So I came back here and tried Fred's link and it worked like a charm. The discount lowered the price enough on the mobile site so that I could pay via Google Wallet and get an additional $93 off.

Oh well, resistance was useless ...
Great deal for the A7r + 55mm, I don't own a cell phone so I couldn't get the Google Wallet deal but $650 off is excellent. Had to call though.

i was solo close to pull the trigger and at the end decided to stick with my Sony RX1R for now.. as great deal as it is.. one camera for me is plenty and size matter (RX1R is smaller at this point)..

Still, wish I could have both if $$$ wasn't that big issue.

I talked to 2 different B&H sales people yesterday and today and one said the promotion has ended but the 2nd one said that the promotion link is tied to a specific email and can't be reused again which is why the discount disappears once you log in.

Does anyone know of a way to still get this promotion of $460 off? I should have pulled the trigger last week when it was working in my cart!

Is this the correct Metabones adapter for the a7R and canon lenses?

Anyone have any thoughts on this promotional sale? Anyone think there's a chance they may be trying to hook as many Canon "glass investors" as possible, before Canon announces a camera with a competitive sensor?

Do they have a March fiscal year? If so, I agree. I'll take it!

Maybe we will see some A7R's priced close to a grand near the end of summer on the used market thanks to this, thats a price I could definitely get behind as a full time student.

These Sony (and to a slightly lesser extent, Nikon D600/610 and D800/e) prices and the head start in market access are going to put Canon in a similar position to what Nikon was in due to its resisting so long to develop FF bodies. By the time Nikon did come out with FF, Canon had so many generations, that FF used bodies (especially 1Ds and 5D) could be had pretty cheaply, further disincentive to buy a new or exorbitantly priced used Nikon FF.

I'm really kind of surprised that Canon has so easily relinquished their lead in high MP sensors. It seemed the Nikon D3X was sort of a fluke against the 1Ds3.

Inevitably, this will drive down the price Canon can introduce new FF models, whether or not they are high MP/DR or not.

I'm not putting Canon down, but all this price cutting is making the Sony a7R and Nikon D800e more appealing, rather than wait indefinitely for Canon to release an equivalent (or game-changing) IQ camera.

However the cake is cut, we consumers will come out ahead.

Yes, at that point, I probably wouldn't even bother trying to buy the awful and expensive Metabones, and instead buy simple adapters to use my various manual focus/manual aperture lenses. I couldn't treat it as a "serious" camera in that case (my collection is lacking manual UWA and TS lenses), anymore than my M4/3 foray turned out to be -- fun for a while, but ultimately not a productive tool.

The a7R seems like the game changer to me. Because without it, Canon would still demand top dollar for a higher res, higher DR body (if and when that happens), in spite of what Nikon (or anyone else) has to offer, because Canon users would be stuck with Canon lenses that they couldn't use on a Nikon. The a7R changes that dynamic.

Definitely watch the B&S forum over the next few months as people who picked one up decide its not for them and unload them used

This is right in regard to the adapter. I bought the Metabones adapter to see how AF is working but most of the time I am simply using my EF lenses on this adapter in MF mode because it is so easy with the A7R to focus manually. Not sure if IS is working with EF adapters which have no AF control. This still might be a benefit of the Metabones III adapter.
