    Found this deal too good to pass up from a place in Hong Kong called T-Dimension for $1,598.89. I ordered on Monday afternoon and it was here this morning (Wednesday). Great shipping (through fedex) and no customs issues. I am not afflliated with the seller in any way. Only hitch is you need to switch the menu language to English (if so desired) on initial setup.

    That's a good deal. Too bad that a) I'd have to pay the GST on import and b) i already have it. :)

    Enjoy your A7. I love mine.

    Yeah I've found a similar eBay deal too, $1699 AUD....but I didn't realize we'd have to pay GST on that ! I've never had to pay GST on items such as this that I've bought from overseas.

    Supposed to be anything over $1000.00 is liable for GST on import for overseas purchases. Customs send you a nice letter and you need to pay before the goods are released.

    I've heard of people not getting charged but always assume I'm going to.

    Will this be covered by Sony warranty?

    Rick Perry does not want to burden corporations with such liabilities as a warranty. Seriously, the warranty is not global (like Olympus).

    T-Dimension claims to do in house warranty work. I bought the panny 2.8 zooms from them. They were giving 8 yr. warranties on it. Never needed to find out how valid their claim is. Sold them.
