A65 and kit lens
Feb 23, 2012

I'm an old Minolta film shooter (remember that stuff?) and have kept with Minolta, Konica Minolta, and now Sony over the years. I have a glass investment that I simply cannot afford to replace over in the CaNikon world.

With that said, I'm thinking about an A65 as my next body (finally time to give up my beloved but oh-so-old K-M 7D). However, every website I look at only appears to sell the A65 with the kit lens. Even Sony's own website appears to only have the kit (assuming I wanted to pay full retail).

I have 20+ years of accumulated glass - I don't want to pay for a kit lens I will rarely (if ever) use. Am I just being fooled by web retailers trying to get me to buy the more expensive kit, or is there really no way to buy just the body (as the Sony website implies)?
