Re: Sony A55 SLT-A55VL for $599 - is this a good price/deal?

pricing breakdowns are always interesting when rationale is told! knowing the A55 is a discontinued model and buying used is an option, recently (early april 2012) cameta was offering A55 body only for US$430 (free shipping). i think was new, (but assume open box for comparison) either way 1 yr factory warranty.

so your $599 plus tax deal nets the 18-55 lens to US$170+,
or the $829 with 18-250 nets the 18-250 lens to $400+
might argue the marginal step up from 18-55 to 18-250 is $230

now [say the 18-55 lens is worth $100] value the A55 with 18-55 lens =$530
this reasoning would value the A55 with 18-250 lens =$760 (430body+100+230)
