Weird…Amazon US removed the Sony 24mm GM preorder option…


SAR reader noticed that Amazon removed the possibility to preorder the Sony 24mm f/1.4 GM lens. Don’t know why they did this. What we all know is that the lens is constantly out of Stock at Bhphoto and Adorama.

I guess the demand for this lens is far superior to the production output. And that’s why Amazon may have stopped takin preorders until they get a decent Stock of those?

One more thing: Today only you save up to 40% on Anker Charging Accessories at Amazon US. Those external batteries can be quite useful for us photographers…
