Sony really came out of nowhere with their A7 II announcement, so much so that they did not even notify distributors in the US or Europe beforehand (as is customary for many releases). In fact, that is why you don’t see any pre-ordering links for them yet, because B&H, Amazon, Best Buy, etc all found out about the A7 II the same way and time that you and I did.
It’s not unheard of, but it is certainly not the usual procedure. So many of you have been wondering when those of us in the US or Europe will be able to get our hands on the new A7 II. The answer is that there is no official word on that, but a new rumor has surfaced that sheds some light on the situation.
According to a post over on Sony Alpha Rumors, the A7 II will ship to the US and Europe in January, or February at the absolute latest. There is still no official US or Euro pricing, but $1600 seems to be the common thought at this point.
Stay tuned, we will keep you updated as more information becomes available.
