Sony DSLR Market: The Price Charts (a snapshot)

The Price Charts take a snapshot of the current DSLRs at some of the major retailers out there. We started with the Nikon mount DSLRs, continued with the Canon mount DSLRs, and today we present the Sony Minolta Alpha mount DSLRs, which are currently all made by Sony. K-mount and Four-thirds coming later on!

This edition will be a little different, Adorama is not publishing Sony DSLR prices on their website, so to make our life easier, we will be replacing them with Sony Style prices.

We haven't forgotten the upcoming Alpha A900
Of course we know that there is a new Sony 35mm full-frame DSLR coming, the Alpha A900, which will be using the new 25mp Exmor sensor. But since this has not been officially announced as a product, we are not including it in the table. And obviously it is not listed by any of the major retailer websites. And the price remains a mystery!

See the previous footnotes for more details. There's no point in repeating the same essay in every post.
