Thew new Sony A7s is now listed at Amazon (Click here) with no pricing just like at BHphoto or Digitalrev. An US store is listing the A7s for $2,500 (Click here). But I am pretty sure that’s a “pure guess price”. Interesting to note is that WexUk removed the A7s preorder page after they said they got the price from Sony (2500 pounds which is around $4000).
