Yeah, due to the Thailand floodings, no one can give a specific arrival date.
But then, even if the Sony Store had them in stock I might just wait it out for either Amazon or B&H to save on sales tax.

Very misleading listings - they look to be in stock, but when you get to the shopping cart, it is marked "temporarily out of stock" - due at the end of January for the a65 and a77 kits, early March and April for the bodies, respectively. They are determined to sell those kit lenses, it seems.

Wow, I didn't think to check that far into it. Good thing I want the A77 kit - Mar or Apr is way too long of a wait! But maybe other retailers will have the bodies before then.

For those interested or considering the A77or A65, I found this link on Dyxum/s site discussing the view finder in terms we can all relate with.
Pretty impressive technology.
