I just got an email from Sony and they have huge savings on a ton of equipment on for photography in particular! It also looks like BHPhoto took over the retail sales for Sony in the US and possible elsewhere. The newsletter from Sony now links to BHphoto directly instead of Sony’s website which I found very interesting. I heard hints of this, but was not sure if it would actually happen.
Clearly BHphoto is the best and biggest photography gear distributor, so this move does make sense for Sony in that regard. If the retail side of things was to much logistically for Sony, then why not let the people that do it the best take over?
Makes sense to me and now Sony can perhaps focus more on making awesome cameras, and not have to worry about the logistics of selling the cameras in the US for example.
I think this is a good move for Sony, but ultimately time will tell. I’m not sure if all Sony users will like this change, but I have always purchased from BHPhoto when it came to serious gear, so I think it’s a great move!
