Sony has reduced the price for an A900 and Zeiss 24-70/2.8 by $500. !!!` Helpful in these times of financial crunch.
$2,684. for the camera and $1,566. for the lens = $4,250. ... with free shipping. Interesting given that Nikon just increased prices, at least on some key lenses. I'm tempted to sell something and pick up a back-up for weddings (need 2 of most everything for wedding work)
On an unrelated note, I just ordered a Hasselblad V to Sony/Minolta adapter to use all my CFE/CFi and FE optics including the incomparible 110/2FE ... the perfect portrait lens on a A900? Report will follow delivery of the adapter.
