I've seen the body-only kit for the a57 available on Amazon UK and one or two places overseas but not on the official Sony UK website itself which strikes me a bit as odd? Unless they just haven't updated their website recently enough to include it in the products list?
My problem is that I am looking to upgrade from the a55 "1st generation SLT" to the a57. As such, I already have the kit lens (18-55mm SAM zoom) and from what I see on eBay they don't really go for much so its probably more of a hassle to find a buyer than anything else!
I have considered the new 18-135mm kit option but at the moment I'm looking at a couple of Tamron or Sigma lenses anyway so would much rather go for the a57 body-only idea.
So does Sony officially offer this package (website not up to date) or is there an actual reason why they don't or won't? All of the other currently produced SLT's are offered as such...so it strikes me as strange why the a57 isn't?
