Sony has several lenses available with up to $200 off via instant rebates through May 17, 2014. These appear to be all A-mount lenses. Check them all out here at B&H Photo.
Sony is expected to announce a refresh to the Sony A77 on May 1, next week.

Sony has posted sample footage from the new A7s on YouTube in full 4K resolution. Not that many people have a monitor to view it in full 4K resolution, but it’s there nonetheless. Of course, you can still get a great impression of the camera from the full HD version.
