[Not Honored – $20 Credit Instead][Expired] Amazon: Sony 85mm f/1.8 Full-Frame E-Mount Prime Lens: $249.99 (Normally $548)

Update 9/15/19: Unfortunately this isn’t being honored, but Amazon is offering the people who ordered this a $20 Amazon credit instead, this will be applied to your next order.

This is no longer being offered.

The Offer

Direct link to offer (our affiliate link)

  • Amazon has the Sony 85mm f/1.8 Full-Frame E-Mount Prime Lens for $249.99. This normally costs $500+

Our Verdict

This will probably get cancelled, but I think some similar price errors recently got honored so worth a shot if you want this lens. It does say expected shipping is 1-3 months so that makes it less likely but you never know.

What does “in for cancellation mean”?

That they’re buying one, but assume it will get cancelled.

Fingers crossed! Could easily resell on eBay for $50-100 profit, no reason not to try to get it.

I have this lens. It’s an amazing deal. This is definitely one of the sharpest lens in the world, according to DXOMark lens rating chart.

Does Amazon charge now or later when it ships? Asking cuz the 5% Chase Amazon CB for Prime vs. ?% for non-Prime (later) diff., ya know…

Normally, they charge when the item(s) ship (policy), but not all the time.

Hmm. I bought one, but in hindsight I’m not liking the lack of pricing history on triple camel, due to the fact that it’s a new listing with no reviews and only one question asking about the legitimacy of the lens. The original page to the product does link through to this “newer item”, though. Perhaps it’s an intended promotion, or maybe Sony did something to cheapen the quality of the lens?

Well the price is back up above $500 now. Kinda supports the idea that this was a mistake. Fingers crossed they stick with it!

Jim

Me too! I see that, and now today it’s no longer available. 20 or so questions were asked on the Amazon page about it’s legitimacy, of course. I’m surprised that the seller not only responded to each and every one so quickly (this itself isn’t that typical), but didn’t bother to take down the page or change the price as quickly…..knowing full well why questions were being asked. I’ll keep fingers crossed but I’m still not convinced there’s not something amiss here

Got an email from Amazon saying that they are canceling the order but will add a $20 Amazon GC to my account as a compensation. I’m happy with that 🙂
