A850 discontinued in Singapore - OFFICIAL

Gentlemen,

It is official. Sony A850 has been discontinued in Singapore officially. Checked with a couple of sonystyle stores and verified with my friends working at Sony - They have been instructed to return the demo units by end of this month and not to take any new orders until further notice.

As usual, no reason was given by the HQ. So reasons are open to speculation;

  • The natural disaster could be one of the reasons.

I was looking forward to buy it by July this year and build up my lenses line-up. Looks like there is no stock of A900 either. If what is said to be believed, then there could be no more bodies manufactured in Japan.

Keeping my fingers crossed until July and keep a watch on the market to see if I can get the camera for a really good price. How I wish I were in USA or UK where excellent cameras go on sale so frequently.
