I realize that this may seem expensive but I assure you it is the accessories that come with this package that drive the price. The Zen DP170/Zeiss lens pkg was almost 2600.00 alone (see Reefphoto.com), the inon strobes 1000.00, the 45 viewfinder 1000 not to mention the multiple top side lenses. The dome ports and macro ports are included for every shooting occasion. When I added everything together at what I could purchase used separately on Ebay etc, I was well over 9000.00. That was unrealistic. I would consider selling the nex7/housing at a significantly reduced price since I know I could sell the accessories (inon, sola, Zen, 45vf) for more individually. I hope this clarifies the price. I am open to reasonable offers since I have purchased a new setup.
