    And if you go for the zoom lens get the Tamron 75-300, not the Sony. The Sony costs more and doesn't provide images that are as good as the Tamron.
    Tamron is a better quality lens for less too!

    Nice deal! Was it brand new? I was taking some softbox tabletop pictures yesterday and realized for some items I need another flash...

    It's brand new D4agon. Amazon are selling it for 153.66 but you get 30 cashback from Sony, meaning it actually only costs an excellent 123.66. Everywhere else I've looked for this flash was way more expensive than that:
