There is also a link on that order page with some cryptic information about a mail-in rebate for the 4k upgrade for people who bought an X70 before March 30.

Re: 4k Upgrade now ready for pre order

Just thought I'd chime in with the usual UK pricing moan.........

Come on Sony UK - stop the price gouging $499 = 320 + VAT = 384 NOT the 499 you're charging us!!!! - f'ing rip off

/end rant

Re: 4k Upgrade now ready for pre order

End user pricing after rebate will be $200 USD. Not bad, I think I will preorder just to keep my X70 from depreciating in value.

I won't be able to shoot in 4K though. My FCP X install won't let me export frame-rates (24/25/30) that don't match the project timeline frame-rate, which for me is ALWAYS 60p! Everything exports as still frames.

Now I've gone from being resigned to the high UK pricing to being absolutely furious with Sony UK!

It's apparently 60,000 yen on the Japan website ,about 307 at current exchange rates. I live in Thailand ,so Sony Asia who say they will release it Monday 22nd. Don't know the price yet. Why not try another Sony site?

Alaska is included. A quote from the rebate PDF:

"Offer valid only in the continental United States Hawaii and Alaska; excluding territories."


I'm assuming this is because B&H is located in the US. I believe Sony Authorized Dealers in other countries would have their own rebate programs.

Re: 4k Upgrade now ready for pre order

the last days I got Mails from German-reseller and UK from Sony, no rebate in Europe, so I and many other say, Sony should get his Software and we need no 4k! Because customer get more for free.

I bought from Amazon in the US, better be able to get the rebate. Be nice if it was more clear who/how eligible etc.
