    Unhappy SONY Glass prices climb

    Well, if you didn't get your glass back in December 2008, during the limited discounts ... it is going the wrong way, now.

    On average, nearly everything is now up $20-$100 than March 31st, 2009, as the dollar declines in value. Definitely "INFLATION", because the product certainly did not get any better.

    The one outstanding exception is the CZ 24-70mm f/2.8, which dropped $150.

    I guess if you are out of work, due to the economy, you can afford higher priced glass. Sure, why not?

    Oh yeah, the α900 dropped $300, too. So, if you wanted a new camera and killer lens to go with it ... the α900 and CZ 24-70 f/2.8 ... the total is $450 less, now. Give some to get some ...

    At least the glass in your bag is probably worth .. more?

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.
