B&H has a couple of deals on the Sony VG900 full frame camcorder that include a nice kit of extra gear.

The Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 Di USD lens for Sony Alpha mount is now shipping. Interestingly, the lens carries the same $1299 price tag for the Sony Alpha version even though it does not offer the Vibration Compensation function feature found in the Canon and Nikon versions.
(For those unfamiliar with Sony Alpha cameras, they feature sensor-based image stabilization and, therefore, do not require a lens-based image stabilization function.)
