so it's official. We as user in the United States won't ever get the bundle. Get the body-only with free 16mm, get the one with 18-55mm, or get the 6. Whichever you choose, you won't get the bundle that's already been sold everywhere else in the world.

W T F....

I would think Sony is protecting the lens price and stand alone sales. With the less expensive 5r bundle, there probably would be a lot of kit splitting. There still will be kit splitting with the Nex-6, but it will be by private parties trying to make a portion back on their purchase. In the last couple of weeks the 16-50mm has shown up on ebay for $270 a few times in kit splits, so you know it was going to get worse. The lens would probably end up being for sale around $200 or so, and that probably would kill a lot of retail sales of the 16-50mm at $350.

Thank you
