this was mentioned on SAR that Sony USA employees were allowed to purchase 2 or more bodies at 50% off retail. one Sony employee was able to put twenty in his cart at 50% off.

So it may not be "fallen off the back of a truck .. wink .. wink", but a bunch of smart Sony employees realizing they can make up for some loss wages quickly.

Also .. keep in mind the current USA promotions you can get a A7R down to 1600 or so anyways without much of a fuss by tradiing in a broken down $1 camera from a thrift shop for a $300 discount.

Both Adorama, BH and focus will trade in any film, digital,etc camera even with a fork stuck in it for a $300 discount. if you actually have a useful camera to trade - you get even more as you also get the respective company's trade in value once they receive the camera.

but as with everything in Craigslist - insist on a meeting in a very public place, check out what you are getting and go prepared to walk away without the camera if you feel anything's amiss.
