Re: NEW Promotion for F55 and F5

What?!?!Buying an F5 and have a $4000 Lens(1 of 5 sets) as a gift? The idea is so weird. It feels like Sony is trying to get ride of their PL Lenses by boosting sales of the camera. You can give out the EVF, or R5 recorder. But why one prime lens?

 

I'm pretty sure everyone will sell the lenses(It is useless to have one prime lens and it seems like you cannot buy Sony primes individually...) And it becames a $3000-$4000 discount for the camera. Which will make people like me, who just purchased an F5 at $16000 upset. A $500-$1000 discount is acceptable. But "$4000 discount" is basically hurting the value of our cameras. Don't do it the Red way. Remember when F55 announced Red Epic reduce price from 32000 to 19000? Which upset a lot of people who invested in the camera.

Re: NEW Promotion for F55 and F5

Also the promo states that the customer can't request which focal length they receive. What is the point of getting one prime in a random length? Taking a crapshoot on an expensive peice of equipment makes no sense.

 

I really can't see the reasons behind this promo. It's offering a package that is not that desirable (as it seems you can't buy the lenses individually) and stands to upset current owners like myself.  What's the end-game here sony?

Perhaps we could start a tally of which lenses people receive, and we can cobble a community set together!

The timing combined with the inability to choose which lens, tells me they and trying to get rid of old stock people arent buying before NAB.

 

It explains not being able to select the lens you want.

Great if you were an early buyer...many ordered the camera just by looking at the specs on the web/paper. Will we get such a gift ?

Re: NEW Promotion for F55 and F5

I bought my F5 about a month ago and am I sore about not getting this deal? no. things change. stuff goes on sale the longer into the cycle we get. but this "lens roulette" is a bit crazy....

They should at least offer a discount rate to people who already bought the cameras. I would like the 35mm.
