Check this out: yesterday the offer ended April 27: $998 after a $200 instant rebate. Kinda makes you want to snap one up before it expires, right?
Thing is, today the offer is through June 1, and the price is now $948 after $250 rebate ($50 less), along with 2% reward and free shipping. Or $1098 with the kit zoom. Such pricing deadlines have the tendency to train buyers to hold out for a better deal.
There will likely be a new Sony NEX-7N within 2-3 months, but this pricing starts to look attractive in context of other APS-C cameras, and it’s unclear if a NEX-7N would be materially improved.
