Nice enough bodies but their lens selection leaves a bit to be desired.

Too little too late. Maybe I'll switch if my gear inevitably gets stolen

Its shown on their site for a heavily overpriced R22 995
https://www.outdoorphoto.co.za/came...Digital-Camera-with-16-50mm-f3-5-5-6-OSS-Lens

848 US x R14 = R11 872 , DHL shipping for equivelent priced item 63 USD x R14 = R882- Total Cost excluding custom duties R12 754 :erm: that is one hell of a mark up even with shipping costs

Definitely something hinky going on here because all of a sudden both B&H and Adorama have notifications under Sony and many other mirrorless systems that these items dont ship to S.A. anymore.

Hope its not some stupid trade agreement. :(

Amazon will ship to SA.

±R14832.

Edit: FWIW it’s usually the size and weight that determine shipping costs, not the price of the item. ;)

Just did a rough calculation using B&H's site. :eek:

Disturbing that items which were able to be shipped here from both B&H and Adorama are no longer giving me anything other than the cannot be shipped message.

Went through a quite a few of my bookmarked items only to find that the shipping had changed. :(
