Here is another good deal for Sony a7/a7R (As posted in ++++++++rumors):
"You can trade in any camera (in any conditions) and get a $300 credit valid for the purchase of a Sony A7 and A7r at Focuscamera (Click here). This is the second great A7-A7r deal of the week after the Up to $650 off savings on A7-A7r, lens and flash packages at Amazon US (Click here), BHphoto (Click here), Adorama (Click here) and SonyStore US (Click here)".
I called Focus Camera, and the $300 credit is good for any camera, even a broken point-and-shoot, which is stackable on top of the Sony $650 rebate, leading to total of $950 off the package.
Needless to say, I broke down and ordered the package of A7R, Zeiss 55 f/1.8, and Sony HVL60M flash.
The flash has known overheating issues, but I figure I could use it for non-continuous shooting or send it to Sony service and see what they will do for me.
BTW, Focuscamera website does not list the package of A7R/55mm/HVL60M under the $300 trade-in deal, just one with the 35mm lens. However, I found their ebay listing for the package I prefer, and they honored the $300 deal when I called them. http://www.ebay.com/itm/291079850904?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649
