The Sony A99 price has been reduced even further, as the flagship A-mount full frame camera is now available for under $2,000 at Amazon, a price that includes a vertical grip for this shooter.
Sony and Amazon seem to have recently become best friends. The retailer is offering some amazing deals when it comes to the Japan-based company’s digital imaging products.
Lately, the A3000 mirrorless camera has had its price dropped under $300, an amount which also includes an 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 lens.
Now it is time for another amazing deal! The Sony A99 price has been cut down to about $2,000 at Amazon, while the store invites photographers to “bundle & save” by offering a free vertical grip with the purchase of the camera.
Sony A99 price reduced at Amazon and buyers will get a free vertical grip
Sony has reassured A-mount camera and lens owners that this line-up is not dead and that more such products will be introduced soon. In the meantime, the flagship shooter of the A-mount series has had its price cut down at Amazon.
The Sony A99 price now stands at $1,998, the first time it goes under the $2,000 milestone. The original price of the A99 was $2,798. As a result, photographers can get it with a $800 discount, which is 29% lower than the launch price.
It is worth reminding that the A99 was introduced in September 2012 at the Photokina event. Although its replacement has been rumored to drop at Photokina 2014, it seems like the A99II is actually coming in early 2015.
Getting back to this amazing deal, buyers will also receive the Sony VGC99AM vertical grip at no extra cost. Usually, this accessory is selling for about $380, so it is your free ticket of getting into the select world of professional photographers.
