How it works (text via Adorama):
Purchase a new Sony A7, A7 kit or A7R from the list in that Adorama link (Click here) now and receive $300 instant trade-in credit + $50 Gift card and 4% Adorama rewards even before you send your old camera to Adorama.
Our Used department then evaluates your old camera that you wish to trade and gives you a quote. Once evaluated, you would receive the full credit for your old camera on top of the $300 instant trade-in credit!

This is how it works if you for example buy the A7r:
1) 4% reward on $2298 means you get $91 back to spend at Adorama store

One more update on the Sony A7 and A7r light leak issue story:
A source just told me that “The Sony service centers know how to fix the light leak“. The cause was “an assembly issue“. This has been confirmed by a test run by an user on the Korean site SLRclub. It’s the mount ring that has to be fixed to solve the issue.
And if you think Sony is the only company having such troubles well….the porbably most popular camera of the moment, the Fuji X-T1 (here at Amazon) has been reported to have the exact same issue!!! But Fuji already offers a service where you can sind in the camera and get it back repaired within 10 days.
Two anonymous sources sent me small bits of A77 successor info:
– (SR4) Announcement will be made the first week of May (and availability in June!)
– (SR3) Camera can do 14 fps.
I am still not sure yet if Sony will also use new RX cameras and new A/E mount lenses. Hope to get SR5 confirmations soon!
